Perhaps a silly question but is there a list that shows the future mainline planned trips pulled by diesel locomotives based on the SVR?

I suppose the loco owning groups will advertise them well in advance. I usually look at:-
http://railwayherald.com/railtours
http://www.railtourinfo.co.uk/diesel.html

There may be other sites that list tours.

You could set up a page on the Wiki and help keep it updated?

For starters.......

"Mainline Tours

Thankyou to everyone that supported the two mainline tours this year.

Although there are no firm dates for 2018 tours yet, you can expect a few good ones! You might want to keep the following dates free (nudge nudge, wink wink!):

March 17th

April 14th

June 23rd"

D1015 is still active on the Severn Valley Railway although still running on only one engine. Work continues with the rebuild of B engine and the aim and expectation is that the loco's next mainline tour will be with Pathfinder in March 2018.

Dear Sharpo & Patrick, thank you for the information sources which are just what I was looking for. If I come across any SVR rail tours its best for me to stick with this forum and report them here as that will be challenging enough for me! Although I guess others may well see them before me.
