Lausitzer Dampflokclub provisional 2018 railtour dates

Here is a list of provisional railtour dates for the Lausitzer Dampflokclub for 2018.  As far as I am aware, none of these have yet been advertised, let alone bookings opened, so please therefore treat this list in the spirit it is intended – purely to help you with as much advance warning as possible over what they are trying to do.  I do not want the LDC on the receiving end of any negativity if these plans do not come to fruition in the hoped-for way.

The group is currently engaged in fundraising to repair their steam loco 23 1019 after damage sustained at Chemnitz.  Should you wish to book on any of these, you will be helping them in this aim, when indeed bookings open.
