Wartime in the Cotswolds 2015
The date has been fixed, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April, and final details are being arranged for 2015's nostalgic 1940s weekend at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway. Step back in time, pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile, smile.
Travel this beautiful heritage line between Cheltenham Race Course Station and Toddington, stopping at Gotherington and Winchcombe on steam hauled trains, (air raids permitting).
Attractions include military and civilian re-enactors, military camps, ARP post, children's activities, air raid experience, a Sherman tank and 1940s style entertainment throughout the day. All stations have catering and toilet facilities and there's the Flag and Whistle cafe at Toddington. The Narrow Gauge Railway will be running on both days at no extra charge. Dress in 1940s period costume or come as you are. There will be a Saturday evening big band dance at Toddington Station, at extra cost, with all your favourite 1940s tunes.
On Sunday there will be the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire fly past (subject to weather etc.)
