This is a relaxing trip through Cotswold countryside taking you back in time when it was a pleasure to travel by train. You can spend a day in Broadway and then relax while the train wends its way back to Cheltenham racecourse.

Trained to Broadway for a few drinks, lunch and a walk along Cotswold way. The train was totally fun with friendly and informative staff. Included a tour of the engine and engaging conversation with the engineer and tender. Rail Fun !!
