Autumn Steam Gala – 30th September to 3rd October 2021

Our Autumn Steam Gala will return from Thursday 30th September to Sunday 3rd October 2020.

We'll see a return of our intensive gala timetables with passenger and goods trains operating.

We're very much looking forward to the return of the Autumn Steam Gala, and more details will be published closer to the event.

Our next running day

Passenger trains have now returned to the GCR, running every Saturday and Sunday, and on selected weekdays.

Pre-booking is required at present, to ensure social distancing onboard trains.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the railway as we progressively return to normal operation, as the national situation improves.
