Great Western Railway
Following the disastrous embankment collapse at Gotherington on the Gloucestershire based GWR heritage railway, a second equally financially damaging slip at the so-called ‘Chicken Curve’ has occurred a few hundred metres north of Winchcombe station. Located on a high embankment that crosses the B4632, this collapse occurred in January 2011 meaning that the railway is effectively severed at Winchcombe. The Gotherington collapse has now been successfully repaired to a higher than original specification.
Public support is required to secure the future operation and development of this major heritage steam railway which has been built and is operated entirely by unpaid volunteers over the last 30 years.
The cost is projected at £500,000 including fees.
