On Tour - Rail in the UK Tour 27 June 2023


Today we had another change due to the Railways changing the days they would open.

However, with a little tickle we made it work. We started the day at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway at its mane station at Toddington. We boarded the 1030 for Cheltenham and stayed on board for the return journey to Broadway and the rest of the line.

The Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway is a volunteer operated heritage Railway in Gloucestershire and Warwickshire offering a round trip of 45 kilometres. It uses part of the route of the former Great Western Railway's main line from Birmingham To Cheltenham which used to run via Strathfield-upon-Avon.

It now operates steam and diesel trains between Cheltenham Racecourse and Broadway through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds. The line commands wonderful views of the nearby sleep hamlets and villages with outstanding outlooks across to the Malvern hills and beyond. Following our scenic tour, we join a group going to see what was happening in the sheds and saw much being done to a few engines and carriages.

Tomorrow Chunet Valley Railway.
