WESERBERGLAND 18- 20 September 2014 EVENT CANCELLED


PLANDAMPF BOOK "FASZINATION SCHWARZE RIESEN"

The long awaited book about the history of Plandampf has been published.

The book covering all aspects of the 20 years of Plandampf is written by various authors and edited by Richard Goergen, of the Revierdampf Team. It is about 180 pages with about 200 photos. Almost all the text is in German, of course, apart from my contribution!

If you are interested please let me know so I can update you on the price and postage cost. The price in December 2010 was 21.50 and postage between 4 and 5.

I hope to see at least some of you at one of the next events.

Regards.
David

PLANDAMPF is the concept of getting sufficient enthusiasts to pay to use preserved steam locomotives to haul scheduled passenger and /or goods trains. This idea started in Germany in October 1990, and has seen a large number of highly successful events. David Sprackland from Andover, England, has been the key UK contact point for information on these events since they started and this page has been given to him so that his much appreciated work in this area can continue. Planned events will be featured here, along with certain Sonderzug being run by Plandampf organisers in Germany.

He can be contacted by E Mail:    plandampf (at) hotmail.co.uk    To reduce SPAM you will have to type the address using @ instead of the (a) shown.

David plans to use this page to replace the E mails he has sent to certain Plandampfers in the past. So if you want to keep in touch electronically with Plandampf please add this page to you "Favourites", and come back from time to time.

As full details of the next major Plandampf become available Plandampfers will be able to use a link on this page to use a printable application form that can be posted off to David along with your remittance. Please note that payments will still need to be made as before, i.e by cheque. So again, to make sure you can use this new service please add this page to your "Favourites".

Every effort will be made to try and post up to date and accurate information here. But any of the events below can be cancelled for a number of reasons: sometimes very close to the actual date the event is planned for. This could be because one or more of the locos becomes unserviceable, because insufficient people have paid for the event, because late changes have been imposed by DB or a host of other reasons. So be warned! And please also read the DISCLAIMER on this web page and also the Notes and Conditions for attendance at Plandampfs and other Events which must be accepted by anyone wishing to participate.

German DVD and Videos at a discount.
David has recently reconfirmed with Rio Grande and three other companies, (MIBA, Eisenbahn Journal and Eisenbahn Romantik), that now form the Verlagsgruppe Bahn, that he can still buy from their wide range of DVD's and Videos at a small discount. Anyone wishing to take advantage of this should contact David at his new E mail address:    plandampf (at) hotmail.co.uk
To reduce SPAM you will have to type the address using @ instead of the at shown above.
