GWSR Cheltenham Gloucestershire 18th May 2021

GWSR Cheltenham Gloucestershire 18th May 2021
It was the first day this year that the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Steam Railway had run a two-train service. Great Western Manor 4-6-0 7820 Dinmore Manor was on the 14.40 service. We were heading back to the Midlands from Somerset and made a reservation on this train.

Here 7820 is seen at Cheltenham Racecourse station, the southern terminus, taking water while running round its train of seven coaches. It was a very enjoyable journey for us but with only 6 passengers in those 7 coaches hardly a commercial proposition for the railway!
