  Speeder Excursions

WELCOME to www.railspeeders.com, and the Speeder Excursion Calendar, the internet's most comprehensive source of upcoming Speeder Events.

The following is a list of upcoming "Speeder" events in North America and Australia. We have made every effort to insure accuracy, but mistakes do happen, so we will not be held responsible for errors or omissions.

Please note that virtually all of these events require operators to be qualified by NARCOA and to have valid NARCOA insurance in force. Some of the NARCOA affiliates require membership in their respective organizations. In some cases there are special qualification, equipment and clothing requirements. See respective websites for details. Non-NARCOA events are so noted.

In order to make it easier to pick out newly added events, they will be displayed in BLUE type for a few days after they have been added.
