UK Heritage Railways (2)

This page deals exclusively with the  GWSR (Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway) as well as the Toddington Narrow Gauge Railway. I have travelled with the GWSR on 3 different occasions and it is an impressive operation as can be seen by the variety of traction that they have. Follow the individual links to each blogpost about these trips to see what I mean. The Toddington Narrow Gauge Railway is housed at Toddington Station on the GWSR and is a narrow gauge operation all on it’s own. The interesting thing about this railway is a former Natal sugar  industry locomotive that has been brought back to the UK.
