    Default Cheltenham Carriages


    Been done a few times before I know but I enjoyed a mooch around here.

    These carriages are all surplus to requirements from the Warwickshire & Gloucestershire heritage railway & occupy 2 tracks at the end of their line.
    The live trains are worryingly close, so much so that I couldn't really look at the North most third for risk of being seen.
    They back up & fill a small tunnel which is fenced off at the far end.
    These are generally very similar to the staffordshire ones I did with the addition of a crane which kinda makes the visit worthwhile.

    A nice mixture of departmental wagons.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
