The Easter Eggspress
On Easter Monday 2nd April you have the chance to catch one of the GWSR "Easter Eggspress" specials. Climb aboard at Cheltenham Race Course, Toddington or Broadway Station for this 'eggsellent' event which will be taking place at Winchcombe Station.
On your journey, you can have a go at the FREE Easter activity booklet. Then, at Winchcombe Station, you will have the chance to meet the Easter Bunny and take part in lots of fun Easter activities and win prizes. There will be competitions including egg and spoon races and Easter egg rolling. You will also have the chance to join in many Easter craft activities, visit the extensive model railway layouts, take part in the Easter Egg Hunt or sample the Easter treats in our 1950's style Coffeepot Café.
We are also running an EASTER BONNET COMPETITION, so why not make your own Easter bonnet and wear it on your visit to the railway. There will be special prizes for the best bonnet on each train.
There will still be all the usual activities at Toddington including the new shed viewing area, heritage trail, artefact displays and play area. Make sure you visit the shop on the platform and the Flag and Whistle Café. The Narrow Gauge Railway will also be in operation.
Don't forget there is FREE PARKING at Cheltenham Race Course and Toddington Stations. THERE WILL BE NO GENERAL PUBLIC PARKING AT BROADWAY STATION AND ONLY A SMALL NUMBER OF DISBALED CAR PARKING BAYS THERE.
We are running a special, extended timetable on 2nd April. You can download it by clicking here.
