Dinmore Manor locomotive group
3850 - a Collett development of G. J. Churchward’s incredibly successful 28XX-class and built at Swindon in 1942 . Returned to service in 2005, she has covered over 80,000 miles and steamed for over 1,200 days. Late 2015 saw her withdrawn by owners Dinmore Manor Locomotive Ltd for heavy overhaul, now well underway at Toddington on the GWSR.
DMLL are running a Sponsor a Part scheme throughout 2017, by which individuals
can help with costs of various parts for the locomotive so she can continue the ‘Dream of Steam’ alongside DMLL’s flagship loco, 7820 Dinmore Manor. With sponsorship from as little as £25 for a brake gear pin, there is something for everyone. Each sponsor receives an entry into a free prize draw with exclusive prizes from Day Tickets to Polo Shirts

Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Steam Railway
The railway is a major attraction in the Cotswolds running steam trains on every operating day with the railway almost completely run by volunteers. We have heritage stations and gorgeous scenery. The line currently runs for 12 miles north from Cheltenham Racecourse passing our principle station at Toddington and extending northwards towards Broadway where we be opening a new station in 2018. Our Toddington and Winchcombe stations offer many things to see and do as well as including a café and tea rooms respectively. Our special events include wartime, steam gala and Thomas the Tank Engine weekends all of which prove extremely popular. We are fund raising to complete the extension to Broadway and information on how you could help will be available on the stand along with leaflets on our many special activities. Much more is on our website.
