OPENING TO BROADWAY – 30 MARCH TO 2 APRIL 2018
After 58 years public train services will again run to Broadway Station!
On Good Friday, 30 March 2018, the golden age of steam will return to Broadway, 58 years after the last train pulled out of its picturesque old station. Broadway’s station was demolished by British Rail in 1963. Since 2009 volunteer workers of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway (GWR) have been painstakingly rebuilding the station and restoring it to its former glory. As at January 2018 the station’s two platforms and signal box are complete and the main station building, which will be in keeping with the original¸ is near completion. The rails are in place through the station, but will require ballasting before services can start. Initially, facilities at the new station will be limited, and there will be no public parking at the station. Visitors using cars should park in the existing car parks in Broadway village, or use the free parking areas at Toddington or Cheltenham Racecourse and travel to Broadway by train.
