Dear shareholders, members, supporters and visitors,
We’re nearly there! The appeal has now passed £240,000 so again a HUGE thank you to every donor – this has been a remarkable achievement by you all.
I am pleased to report that the contractors are back on site to complete the repairs so we need to reach our target of £250,000. The appeal WILL close on 31st May so if you haven’t donated yet and want to help us to secure the remaining few thousand pounds, please do so NOW! You can donate by cheque, BACS transfer, PayPal or Virgin Money - click the Emergency Appeal button above.
Every donation will bring us closer to completing the landslip repairs and re-opening the line (when the coronavirus restrictions allow) so I will be very pleased to hear from you.
The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway is a volunteer operated heritage railway in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire offering a round trip of 28 miles. It uses part of the route of the former Great Western Railway's main line from Birmingham to Cheltenham which used to run via Stratford-upon-Avon.
It now operates steam and heritage diesel trains between Cheltenham Racecourse and Broadway through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds. The line commands wonderful views of the nearby sleepy hamlets and villages, with outstanding outlooks across to the Malvern Hills and beyond.
