It promises to be an action-packed weekend with plenty to see and do. Whether your interest is steam, historic diesel traction or both then you will be more than satisfied. Above all it's a chance to reflect on 40 years of development and celebrate the extraordinary volunteer-led achievements that have created today's vibrant railway. Back in 1981, the GWSR was formed to purchase a desolate and trackless line between Cheltenham Racecourse and Broadway and rebuild it from scratch: a huge challenge that many critics claimed had no hope of ever succeeding. The trains running this weekend over 14 miles of breathtakingly beautiful Cotswold countryside spectacularly prove those naysayers wrong.
Footplate rides - 40th Anniversary show at Winchcombe - Gotherington Station open - visit behind the scens at Carriage & Wagon - GWSR special bus link between Cheltenham Network Rail station and Cheltenham Racecourse - refreshments and beer tent - intensive steam and diesel train services - enjoy all that the GWSR has to offer!
