GOLDEN VALLEY LINE
(Worcester - Cheltenham - Sapperton - Swindon)
us for this unique journey with an ex-GWR Castle Class Locomotive.
Running along the southern tip of the Cotswolds Hills, our route takes
us through the picturesque Golden Valley through Stroud.
alongside the Thames Canal, we tackle the steep 1 in 60 gradients, with
our 400+ ton train, to Sapperton Tunnel, before dropping down into
Kemble. From where we continue at high speed towards Swindon, along the
newly relayed double track section, reinstated in 2014. Recapturing the
Spirit of the Cheltenham Flyer this is one program you will not want to
miss out on!
With live sound recorded from the locomotive,
we bring the action right to you. This program also features commentary
(including Driver’s commentary), on screen titles & locations.
