11. A trip on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway, England

Scenes in English South-West Midlands

 

The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway (GWSR) is a volunteer-run heritage steam and diesel railway situated along the Gloucestershire - Worcestershire border of the lovely Cotswolds countryside of south-west England.

The GWSR, with a magnificent effort, has restored and reopened to full train running, nearly 14 miles of track, operating between the stations of Cheltenham Racecourse and Broadway.

The route takes the railway from Cheltenham Racecourse through stations at Gotherington, Winchcombe. Hayles Abbey Halt, Toddington and on to Broadway, less than a mile from this picturesque Cotswold village.
