1st train after landslip

FIRST THROUGH TRAIN LAVERTON TO CHELTENHAM

SINCE THE LANDSLIPS

30TH OCTOBER 2012


Our faithful crew have prepared 7903 to an immaculate state and are readying to take the first train the complete length of the line since the disastrous landslips.  Covering the entire line over the extension to Laverton right through to Cheltenham.  Congratulations must  go to The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway for their fortitude in tackling such as serious situation which could have closed a less dedicated group and to all the good folk who contributed to the fund to rebuild the line.  Follow this link for the full story http://www.gwsr.com

The BBC added to the unique atmosphere of the day by fixing a video camera to the front of our locomotive on the first run and some great footage can be viewed here  GWR Re-opens with John Cruxon on the regulator and Steve Oddy firing       

Now we were all looking forward to an exciting 2013 for both the railway and our locomotive
