What to See and Do at Toddington

 

Memorabilia Displays

The Restoration & Archiving Trust operates three small displays of artifacts at Toddington Station. One is located in a former GWR Collett Brake Coach dating from 1935, and houses a display of memorabilia and early scenes of the railway. There is a small toy museum in the old Honeybourne Signalbox and another collection in the cabin on Toddington Platform 2. To find out more click here.

Demonstration Signal box

Make sure you visit the mini signal box on the far side of the car park between the locomotive yard viewing area and the Narrow Gauge Railway at Toddington and try your hand at being a signalman.

Yard Viewing Area

Visit our loco yard viewing area at the south end of the Toddington station complex. A gated access track near the south-west corner of the car park leads you from the car park, past the locomotive depot buildings and round to the yard area south of the depot. Bring your camera to take a shot or two of the locomotives in the yard. For more details click here.
