Visitor numbers for 2016

I am very pleased to report that we reached the magical figure of 100,000 visitors in 2016. This is a massive increase of over 13% on last year's total which itself was a record, and reflects the tremendous hard work all volunteers put in to make our railway truly the "Friendly Line in the Cotswolds". Thanks to everyone for making this happen.

  1. Well done to all for making the 100,000 happen. We do have a team railway down here in Cornwall of course; but nothing on the scale of the GWsR. Regards, Paul.

  2. Colin, the GWR is the "Smiling" line in the Cotswolds due to the fact the volunteers are always smiling and creating a happy and relaxing and enjoyable day for the visitors! A very well done to all, and here's to a another record year in 2017!!
    Kindest Regards
    Paul & Marion
