Lure of Steam Events

Each year, we run a small number of vintage-themed photographic events aimed at giving photographers the chance to create their own authentic-looking images.

As the name suggests, Lure of Steam Events' main area of expertise is with steam railways, where the romance of yesteryear can easily be recaptured. However, we also run a variety of other charters, including wartime themed days and vintage bus runabouts.


We firmly believe in quality rather than quantity and concentrate on running a small number of well-organised events each year. If you'd like to be added to our mailing list to be notified of future events, please contact us.
