GWR supporters rally round

Supporters of the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Steam Railway, part of which was lost in a dramatic landslip earlier this year, have been rallying round to help raise funds.

Train excursion company, Pathfinder Tours, based in Woodchester Stroud, presented £2,500 to GWR Winchcombe station.

This sum had been raised through raffles held on train excursions run by Pathfinder Tours between February and June this year.

Says Alan Bielby of GWR, “While we have made significant progress towards our target of £1m to repair the embankments at Gotherington (now complete) and more recently at Chicken Curve, we still have a long way to go and the amazing £2500 that Pathfinder’s customers have so generously given will take us a step closer to that goal.”
