PKM raises a very good point, we're approaching steam-up/ steam fair season so keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground. I believe there's one near us in Worcestershire on the weekend of the 9th June, once I've found confirmation I'll post it in Geographic.

I passed through just the other day- driving the picturesque route back from Southampton via Winchester (I had the New Vaudeville Band's "Winchester Cathedral" playing in the car, and it seemed rude not too), and only a few months ago went for a ride on the Steam Railway! Lovely part of the world!

I like hanging around Lepe when I get a chance to leave the city and trample around the New Forest... picturesque beach, lovely trees, wonderful walks... and the random oil refinery nearby.

I doubt I will go, being 14 and all, but I agree with Magna, I've been, it is absolutely amazing, it is a disused Victorian ironworks, and let me say it is absolutely amazing! I would suggest there!

Blist's Hill would be a bad choice, people might mistake you for the volunteers!

Not to spam London area events or anything  Wink, but those in the London area might want to check out the Telectroscope.  The actual device probably won't be all that to look at/use, but I think the housing and the "story"/concept are suitably punkish to attract some attention.  I'll probably be in London tomorrow, might take some photos if I can get close enough and will post them here if they turn out any good.

Check out its slightly over-elaborate official website here.

EDIT: and then he discovers that of course the thing has two threads to itself already.  Read then post, how hard can it be?

Upon reading through this thread I've noticed that there are a few other Steamers not to far from me.
Thus I have a question:
Has anyone heard of Tanfield Railway ( http://www.tanfield-railway.co.uk/cms/ )? My Grandfather voulenteers there from time to time and I spent many a fun trip on the steam train when I was younger.
I haven't been for aaaages and I was just wondering if anyone would like to meet up for a Steampunknic over the summer?

Good evening, I live in Surrey, though I often go up into London or down to Brighton for events and shopping.

I've not heard of it before, no, but I am partial to the occaisional steam train and it's not that far from me (well, it's easily daytrippable anyway), so count me in! Just say when and I shall turn up, work permitting Smiley

 I remember getting taken there a while ago when I still lived in Newcastle, it was great. I would also mention if people are travelling up to it why not make a weekend of it and go to Beamish too?  Smiley

I thought of Beamish first but I was a little concerned about being accidently mistaken for someone who works there.

I'm currently residing just outside Gloucester (nice history, not so nice chav population) but in September shall be moving to Glamorgan for university, so I shall be in Pontypridd (Have I spelled that correctly? Probably not).

Technically I'm near Wales...?

I reside, along with the junior Kingsleys, in the sedate suburb of Hove on the Sussex coast a suitable place for a widow of limited means but extensive imagination.

Well, It's better than staying with one that's not so great.

I live in Hednesford, Staffordshire.  Slap-bang in the middle of the Staffordshire coal fields, and within easy commuting distance of Birmingham. 

~Edit~

And when at University, (which shall be only for a few weeks more), I live in Lincoln. 

But I consider 'home' to be Staffordshire rather than Lincolnshire.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
