Cotswold Bricks and Trains Weekend - 13th and 14th May


May 2017 will see our first Brick event. A chance for new and old fans of those small plastic bricks to be suitably excited and enthralled with the displays. Yes, a LEGO® exhibition is coming to the GWSR; we will be holding a brick exhibition (LEGO® bricks to you and me), at Toddington over the weekend of May 13th & 14th  2017.


Be enthralled by the expertise of Southern Lego Train Club's members, who will be providing the displays. There will also be demonstrations and a chance for our smaller visitors to have a go at building their own brick structures.


We will be operating a red timetable with a difference! In addition to our 2 steam loco hauled trains  running between Toddington and Cheltenham Race Course, a top-and-tailed diesel-hauled train will replacing the diesel railcar on the Laverton/Toddington/Winchcombe service, (keep checking back for details of which diesel locos will be operating).


Buy your tickets for train travel and entry to the exhibition now at a discounted price and avoid queues. On the day exhibition entry tickets will also be available.


The exhibition is open from 10:00 until 16:30 each day.
