† – indicates attendance to be decided/confirmed
‡ – indicates vehicle will operate on public service

The usual disclaimers apply – our plans can be thwarted by all kinds of things.

2018 was a disaster year from a personal point of view, and the vehicles had to take a back seat. 2019 felt similar, but we both started and finished the season with a real blast at the Barking and Harrow Weald events (not to mention Kingston!) all of which we will no doubt fondly remember for a long while, I’m sure. Can we beat that in 2020?
