Heritage Engineering Skills Weekend at GWSR

Saturday 8 - Sunday 9 August 2020


Interested in Engineering?   Ever considered a hobby or even a career in Heritage Engineering?   Ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes to restore, maintain and keep Heritage Railway Locomotives working?   Ever wanted to see the working parts of steam or diesel locomotives?

During this “Introduction to Skills Weekend” at Toddington there will be opportunities to get up close to working steam and heritage diesel locomotives as well those that are in the process of a heavy overhaul or restoration. 

Displays will demonstrate the procedures that the locos go through and the tools that are required.

Guided tours of the loco shed in small groups will take place on Sunday 9 August for over 14's showing the various stages of work underway as well as views of the working engines that are rarely possible.

Free parking will, as always, be available but, at Toddington, in the overflow car park and also at Cheltenham Race Course Station.
Why not travel from Cheltenham Race Course by steam train and make a great day out of it?
