Teddy Bear Tuesdays - 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th August 2020





Owing to the ongoing coronavirus issue and following government advice,  the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway has taken the decision to cancel the Teddy Bear Tuesday events on 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th August. We apologise for the disappointment and appreciate your understanding.


Why not come along and enjoy a great day out on the GWSR on any Tuesday in August?  Join in the fun and bring your own Teddy Bear, or your special cuddly toy, but make sure they’re labelled as you won't want to lose them. No need to book - just turn up on the day.


Catch the Teddy Bear Special Diesel Railcar at Broadway, Toddington, or Cheltenham Race Course station to travel to Winchcombe - see our 2020 Red Timetable for details of Railcar departure times. Look out for a host of Teddy Bears on the Diesel Railcar - they will be waiting for you! Alternatively you can catch any other train to Winchcombe to join in the Teddy Bear fun there.


  • FREE - you will be given our free children’s activity book and pencils during your trip with us; they will be available on all trains


  • FREE - you can collect a Children's Quiz from the booking office at our stations, or for the not so young ask for a free Heritage Trail leaflet at Toddington Station.


  • Why not purchase a genuine ‘I-Spy on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway’ book in one of our shops?


Make sure you have enough time to get off the train at Winchcombe Station and join in the fun of a Teddy Bear Hunt with a small prize for everyone who enters. Don’t miss the Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Platform 2 – why not bring your own picnic to eat with them? You can also purchase drinks and snacks in the 1950s style Coffee Pot Café on Platform 1.


Normal train fares apply for this event.
