The Toddington Narrow Gauge Railway, is an entirely volunteer operated railway that runs from the west side of Toddington Station Car Park, the headquarters of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, situated at the edge of the Cotswold Hills.
Our line is of two foot gauge and runs for around 3/4 of a mile, is operated with steam and diesel traction by the North Gloucestershire Railway Co. Ltd. We have steam locomotives that operated on narrow gauge railways in Belgium, Poland and South Africa.
Our three carriage set are open and give a more intimate view of railway operation than on standard gauge trains and have been built on the frames of Hudson bogie wagons of a type used in RAF depots. On rainy days you may travel in a carriage that ran on the narrow gauge railways of Poland and a very rare survivor that we have restored.
Most of our rolling stock is kept under cover in our large shed that you are welcome to visit when trains are running. Additionally you can also visit our ex Midland Railway signal box, California Crossing, that came from Gloucester and served the Birmingham to Bristol main line.
