WHAT STEAM RAILWAY MAGAZINE SAID ABOUT THE KEITH & DUFFTOWN STEAM WEEKEND BROCHURE:

“As souvenir gala brochures go, it’s up there with the best of them – easily rivalling those sold at galas by much bigger railways – but it’s also a welcome work of reference on a comparatively overlooked railway”.

Steam Railway Magazine, October 2012

The programme can also be bought by post in which case add £1.00p P&P.
