Photographs

 

The railway has an extensive library of photographs - please contact the Press Office to let us know your requirements.

Filming

 

The BBC's Father Brown on the platform at Kembleford (Winchcombe GWSR)

We can also assist if you need to carry out filming on the railway. We have a strong track record of working with production companies looking for period railway location work - our portfolio includes the BBC's Doctor Who and Father Brown as well as full-lengh feature films and documentaries. We can offer station scenes, lineside and on-train opportunities (including side corridor coaches), freight trains, diesel and steam traction. Venues include a tunnel, cuttings, embankments, bridges, attractive landscape, signals, signal boxes and stations including the charming rural Winchcombe station - typical of a Great Western Railway station suitable for pre-war and post-war scenarios. Please contact the Press Office for more information and assistance.
