GWR 2nd June 2007

Here we take a look at a previous gala event at the GWR in 2007. The line has suffered a second landslip and as such financial reserves are very low. The railway re-opens as '2 railways' in April operating a steam service between between Cheltenham Race Course and Winchcombe and a heritage railcar service from Toddington heading up the line over Stanway viaduct. More details can be found here -
