    The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway has held this event for the last 6 years over the last weekend in April and and Ann and I are the Camping Organisers.
    There are Wartime displays with an emphasis on the "1940's Home Front"at each of our 5 stations along the line. Camping is adjacent to Toddington Station and you can travel by steam train up and down the 14 mile line from the new station at Broadway in Worcestershire right thru to Cheltenham Racecourse.
    Public greenfield camping is available at £18 per night or £40 for the weekend but this does not include train tickets.
    I hope that I havent broken any forum rules by posting this.
    Anyone interested or for more details have a look at GWSR.com - its under Special Events

    Each year it seems to get bigger, and I think, better.
    This year we have moved the emphasis towards Home Front as much as the Wartime aspect.
    Or house magazine is called " The Cornishman" to keep the name going

    Of course the camping opens Fri 26th at 1200 -and closes Monday 29th at same time, we only borrow the site off the Farmer- thanks Mr Mann. So please don't leave tent pegs in the farmers grass he will NOT be happy, anyway we will walk all the site and clear it all
    Have a great weekend
    Mike & Ann
