All GWSR Train services have been temporarily suspended

 

COVID-19 Update

 

The safety and well-being of our volunteers, staff and customers is of the utmost importance and to that end we are monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and following all Government guidelines.

Due to the changing situation and Government advice surrounding gatherings, it is both necessary and sensible to cancel our train services for the rest of March and throughout April.

We have also taken the decision to cancel the following events: Easter Eggspress, Wartime in the Cotswolds, Fire and Drive experiences (March & April), Fish and Chips Train (April) and all our group bookings for the rest of March and April.  Our Cotswold Festival of Steam Gala (23rd – 25th May) is under review and, if it runs, it will not be in the advertised format. A decision on this event and our daily services in May will be made in the coming weeks.

Customers who have purchased tickets or experience packages for the above are being contacted individually by email or phone, please bear with us as contacting everyone is going to take time.

This is going to be a challenging period for all heritage railways as we rely on footfall to keep us running. Your understanding, patience and co-operation is appreciated and we thank you all in advance for your ongoing support.

We hope you and your families stay well during this difficult time and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Best wishes,
Richard Johnson
Chairman
