Easter on the GWR


The Easter Eggspress

On Easter Monday, 17th April, you have the chance to catch one of the GWR "Easter Eggspress" specials.  Climb aboard at either Cheltenham Racecourse or Toddington Station for this 'eggsellent' event which will be taking place at Winchcombe Station.

On your journey, you can have a go at the FREE Easter activity booklet.  Then, at Winchcombe Station, you will have the chance to meet the Easter Bunny and take part in lots of fun Easter activities and win prizes. There will be competitions including egg and spoon races and Easter egg rolling.  You will also have the chance to join in many Easter craft activities, visit the extensive model railway layouts, take part in the Easter Egg Hunt  or sample the Easter treats in our 1950's style Coffeepot Café.  

We are also running an EASTER BONNET COMPETITION, so why not make your own Easter bonnet and wear it on your visit to the railway. There will be special prizes for the best bonnet on each train.

There will still be all the usual activities at Toddington including the new shed viewing area, heritage trail, artefact displays and play area. Make sure you visit the shop on the platform and the Flag and Whistle Café.  The Narrow Gauge Railway will also be in operation.

Don't forget there is FREE PARKING at Cheltenham Racecourse and Toddington Station.  As well as the regular steam 'Easter Eggspress' service between Toddington and Cheltenham, the diesel railcar shuttle will also be operating between Toddington and Winchcombe.
