Several of us, along with some of our partners, headed off for a day out on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway. The weather was very overcast and damp to begin the day, but gradually cleared to sunshine later on.


We even had time to head to The Phoenix pub (next to Toddington Station) for a very nice relaxed lunch.
