Train services and special events through to the end of August 2017
Our Programme through to the end of August
The railway's latest station, Hayles Abbey Halt, which is located between Toddington and Winchcombe Stations, is now open for use by passengers. Important Note: Normal steam and diesel locomotive hauled trains will not stop at Hayles Abbey Halt. Diesel railcars (DMUs) only will stop on request. Click here for details.
The line has recently been extended for passenger traffic northwards beyond Laverton as far as the Little Buckland bridge (just over one mile short of Broadway), making the total length of the line some 13 miles. Click here for all the latest news about the railway.
On the weekend of 22/23 July and Wednesday 26 July we will be operating the red timetable with two steam trains and a diesel railcar shuttle service.
On Tuesday 25 and Thursday 27 July we will be running the green timetable with one steam train, a heritage mainline diesel and a diesel railcar. You can ride on three different types of rail transport in one day!
From Friday 28 to Sunday 30 July you can join us for our Heritage Diesel Weekend and Open Day, riding behind our magnificent collection of vintage diesel locomotives plus visiting locomotives, and you can enjoy the open days of our facilities at Toddington and Winchcombe.

And in August, join in the fun with Teddy Bear Tuesdays - bring your own teddy bear - make sure it's labelled as you won't want to lose it. No need to book in advance - just turn up and buy your train tickets at the station booking office. Join a train at Toddington, Winchcombe or Cheltenham Race Course stations. Ride the Teddy Bear diesel railcar special which leaves Toddington about every half hour from 10:40 until 15:05 and Winchcombe about every hour from 11:55 until 15:15 - see our 2017 green timetable for details.
