TODDINGTON NARROW GAUGE RAILWAY

Welcome to the homepage of the Toddington Narrow Gauge Railway, situated at the edge of the Cotswold Hills at Toddington Station, headquarters of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. Our line is of two foot gauge and is operated with steam and diesel traction by the North Gloucestershire Railway Co. Ltd. You will find steam locomotives that  operated on narrow gauge railways in Belgium, Poland and South Africa. On rainy days you may travel in a carriage that ran on the narrow gauge railways of Poland and a very rare survivor. Our other carriages are open and give a more intimate view of railway operation than on standard gauge trains. Nearly all of our rolling stock is kept under cover in our large shed that is open when trains are running. Additionally you may visit our ex Midland Railway signal box, California Crossing, that came from Gloucester and served the Birmingham to Bristol main line.

Taken at Didbrook loop, the southern terminous of the line, this photo is of JUSTINE, one of the resident locos at Toddington. JUSTINE was built by Arnold Jung of  Kirchen an der Siieg, Germany in 1906 and is a typical 0-4-0 well tank of which many thousands were built for industry and contractors. JUSTINE spent her working life at a gravel washery at Maeseyck on the banks of the river Maas in Belgium in the ownership of Gerard Smeets and was named after one of his daughters. The carriages are built on the frames of Hudson bogie wagons of a type used in RAF depots.
