Steam gala

A great success - congratulations and thanks to everyone who helped in any way.
Provisional figures are 3641 visitors who paid on entry plus about 300 who bought on line. This puts us about on budget - an excellent result when you consider the weather and the Toddington field condition!

Have a look at the comments about our railway. We are now rated by Tripadvisor number 2 in Cheltenham (number 1 is a cinema!!) and number 10 in the Cotswolds

Wartime weekend

Numbers were down as expected this weekend - did you see the mud in the field at Toddington? Visitor numbers were about 1560 including pre purchased tickets which was about 20% down on 2013. Even having said that, the event was a tremendous success with loads of congratulatory e mails and cards (see Tripadvisor) and we still made a handsome amount for the railway. So thanks to everyone who braved the conditions - it was worth it!
