Cotswold Festival of Steam: 26th-28th May

 

Celebrating the GWSR's re-opening of Broadway Station

 

Once again the stage is set for the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway's spectacular Cotswold Festival of Steam with an expected eight locomotives* in steam over the late May bank holiday weekend.

The theme this year is 'Give My Regards to Broadway' and it will celebrate the re-opening of Broadway Station, which now gives us 15 miles of running line from Cheltenham Race Course Station all the way to Broadway.

 

'Give My Regards to Broadway' - what's that all about?

The big attraction of the Cotswold Festival of Steam must be the locomotives - and there will plenty of all shapes and sizes, however this year will be the first opportunity to travel as far north as the beautifully re-created Broadway station.

The event team always strive to find locomotives that have never visited the railway before and you may be sure of some surprises at work in the Cotswolds for this breathtaking family-friendly event. The railway's home fleet of five locomotives will be bolstered by an expected three visitors making EIGHT LOCOMOTIVES operating, adding extra interest and variety.
