This is a good day out if you like classic cars and locomotives!

I've been 3 times before in different classic cars, but have never spotted a Jensen there!

It's free entry for your car on a large field next to Toddington Station, on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Steam Railway.

You get 2 for 1 rover tickets to ride on the steam or diesel pulled trains from Broadway to Cheltenham racecourse, or you can chill out on the Classic Vehicle field if you prefer.There's usually a couple of hundred cars, but plenty of space.


I've just registered online and I'm taking my Interceptor along this year, weather permitting!

My Scimitar at a previous event....

I would love to be there but it's the same day as the committee meeting.

I'd actually much rather be at the GWSR. I helped lay the second length of track there back in around 1983.
