For the forthcoming May bank holiday weekend, the narrow gauge will be operating on Sunday 1 May and Bank Holiday Monday 2 May. Scheduled steam power will be Chakaskraal No.6, Hunslet 0-4-2T. This will be her first public steaming in her lined out livery. We hope you can come along for a ride and get some photo's.
1091 works away from Didbrook towards Toddington during the 'Wartime in the Cotswolds' weekend on Saturday 23 April 2016
The 1940's "Wartime in the Cotswolds" event was well attended and many took a ride on the narrow gauge line at Toddington. Our first train, hauled by Henschel No. 1091, was at 10am, the last at 4:30pm. A long but enjoyable day for our volunteers.

Our historic Gloucester R C & W carriage which last worked at the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924/25 has taken another leap forward with bogies being fitted. However it is nowhere near finished yet with stretcher bars, footboards, grab handles and refelting of the roof still needed. Not much will be done now until we raise the estimated £2500 needed to cover the cost of these jobs. All contributions gratefully received, please get in contact if you can help.
