Gloucestershire & Warwick Railway - The Friendly Line in the Cotswolds offers a unique opportunity to sample train travel from 50 years ago. The world was changing rapidly and so on our 29 mile round trip you can sample the glory of steam and those “new” diesel railcars with the panoramic views – and for the children (young and old!) those seats right behind the driver to see what he sees. Large diesel locos also haul some services.
You pass through glorious Cotswolds scenery; to the west the Vale of Evesham, the Malverns and Wales. To the east the Cotswolds climb steeply uphill.
