Gloucester & District

Steam Railways

The Steam Railway Group would be of interest to anyone who has either a serious passion for steam trains or would just like the opportunity of reliving past memories of steam travel in the UK. Since the group was set up in early 2016 we have made visits to The Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway, The Severn Valley Railway, The Dean Forest Railway, Didcot GWR Centre, The Vale Of Berkeley Railway and most recently the West Somerset Railway. All of which were very well attended.

In addition we arrange for guest speakers to talk to us at The Guild Hall on specific matters of Railway related topics.

The following day outings have been arranged for the first half of 2018.

February 1st. The Steam Museum at Swindon.

April 11th. Travel on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway from Cheltenham Racecourse.

June 21st South Devon.

The cost of these trips will be announced when the number of those wishing to come is known.

Those who are interested in any of these events or would like to know more about our group please contact John Smith at jws.ikb@gmail.com or call me on 01452 536270

Use the Calendar to find out when this group meets, and any special events they may hold.
( Remember to use the filter box (white box), and the drop-down menu, to focus on the group you are interested in. )
