Eric Boulter

We are very sorry to report the passing of Eric Boulter who passed away on Sunday after a long period of illness.

Eric will be fondly remembered for his years of service on the Griddle Car, with his customary shouts of "plates are hot" as he served many a satisfied customer their all-day breakfast.

Eric was a well respected member of the GCR family and will be sorely missed.

We will publish details of Eric's funeral arrangements when these are known.

Our next running day
Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday
Chase and Skye from PAW Patrol are visiting the GCR this week.

One steam locomotive and our diesel railcar will be operating.

Our trains are operating normally this week and the railway is not currently affected by flooding.
