A little fact Finding Mission!

Two of us went on a fact finding mission to the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway last Sunday.  We managed to spread the word slightly and had a jolly good time as well!

As can be seen in the photographs, there were a variety of traction and gauges enjoyed during a thoroughly enjoyable day.  Certainly a place to be recommended!

GWR 2-8-0T 4270 hauled the train we rode on
3 car DMMU which took us up the extension to a point just short of Broadway
7903 Foremark Hall hauled the second steam train
On the Narrow Gauge Line the Simplex 100hp locomotive hauled our train

Now we are back to raising some fund for the restoration of our little P tank.  We will be on Platform 1 at Sheffield Park on Saturday for "End of Southern Steam" with a stand selling the replica war service badges and much much more!  We hope to see you there.  Unfortunately we are unable to run a stand on the Sunday owing to prior engagements and no relief being available.
