The Toddington Narrow Gauge Railway, is an entirely volunteer operated railway that runs from the west side of Toddington Station Car Park, the headquarters of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, situated at the edge of the Cotswold Hills.

Our line has a gauge of two foot and runs for around 3/4 of a mile, is operated with steam and diesel traction by the North Gloucestershire Railway Co. Ltd. We have steam locomotives that operated on narrow gauge railways in Belgium, Poland and South Africa.
Our open three carriage set give a more intimate view of railway operation than on standard gauge trains and have been built on the frames of Hudson bogie wagons of a type used in RAF depots. We also have restored a carriage that ran on the narrow gauge railways of Poland and is a very rare survivor.
Most of our rolling stock is kept under cover in our large shed that you are welcome to visit when trains are running. Additionally you can also visit our ex Midland Railway signal box, California Crossing, that came from Gloucester and served the Birmingham to Bristol main line and our new and growing 16mm "Garden Railway" which has it's own website, click the image below to open the website in a new window.
