Goods Galore Gala – 11th & 12th May 2019

Our goods-themed showcase of how Britain's railways moved goods around the country, becoming a lifeline to towns and villages ahead of the age of mass road transportation.

Expect to see many goods trains in service alongside a frequent passenger service with a named express journey each day, and shunting demonstrations.

Goods Galore is a unique action-packed event with a large number of train movements only possible on GCR's double track. We're showcasing a large selection of goods vehicles alongside our usual passenger fleet to recreate a busy main line in the age of steam.

More details will be announced soon - please check this page for the latest news.
