Easter Eggspress - 13th April 2020





Owing to the ongoing coronavirus issue, the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway believes it would be irresponsible to expose our volunteers and passengers to unnecessary risk. We have therefore suspended railway services which is also in line with the Government's request to minimise leisure travel and social contact in busy places. The Easter Eggspress event has been cancelled and so we are not selling tickets.


Please keep an eye on the website for more information and updates.


We apologise for the disappointment and appreciate your understanding.


On Easter Monday 13th April why not enjoy a day out on one of the GWSR Easter Eggspress specials?  Climb aboard a train at Cheltenham Race Course, Toddington or Broadway Station for this 'eggsellent' event which will be taking place at Winchcombe Station.


As you travel through the beautiful Cotswold countryside, you can enjoy one of our free children’s quiz sheets with Easter puzzles and games to make your journey even more enjoyable – please ask at one of our station booking offices for your copy.


Make sure you get off the train at Winchcombe as all of our free Easter activities are based there. Look out for the Easter Bunny when you arrive on the platform!


If you’re wearing a special Easter Bonnet, you have the chance to win a small prize for the Best Bonnet on the Train. When you get off at Winchcombe, go to the red telephone box to meet the judge.


You can also join in our Free Easter Craft Activities on Platform 1 at Winchcombe, making Easter Egg baskets, or your very own ‘bunny ears’. You can also try our popular temporary tattoo stickers, Easter colouring sheets, puzzles and jigsaws.


There will also be an Easter Egg Hunt around the station, with a small prize if you find them all: correct answers will be entered into a grand prize draw. Before you get back on the train to enjoy a ride along the line, don’t forget to sample the Easter treats on sale in the Coffee Pot Café.


There’s no extra charge for any of the Easter activities; normal ticket prices apply for travelling on the trains. Come along to the GWSR on Easter Monday for a fun day out!
