Diesel Enthusiasts Days – GWSR

Withdrawal symptoms for lack of diesel running? Your wait is over!
We’re running 3 Diesel Enthusiast days between April and June with a different class of traction each weekend.
On Sunday 25th April we’ll kick off with one of our immaculate Class 37s, No 37215, courtesy of the Growler Group. On 23rd May it will be the turn of ‘Peak’ No 45149 and on 27th June we’ll be using No 47376. On each day we’ll be doing 3 full round trips of the line, starting and finishing at Toddington – that’s 84 miles plus.
Pre-booking is essential to guarantee your seat. Diesel traction only on these days – no steam services. Your ticket will entitle you to ride all day. You’ll board the train at Toddington for a 10:00 departure and will arrive back at Toddington on the last trip at just after 17:00.
Tickets cost £30. You’ll also be able to pre-book a ‘picnic’ meal delivered to your seat when the train passes through Winchcombe at around 1240. Our café at Broadway Station will also be open between 11:00 and 15:00.
