Postman Pat, Postman Pat and his black-and-white-cat pay a first class visit to the GWR

On Saturday and Sunday, 25th and 26th April, and not just ‘early in the morning’, Postman Pat® and Jess the Cat are on a special delivery service to the award-winning Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway.

Postman Pat is a hit with youngsters and the young at heart and this is a rare chance to meet Pat and Jess, all the way from Greendale! 

Says Malcolm Temple, volunteer commercial director at the GWR: “There will be lots of chances to have your picture taken with Postman Pat® and Jess the Cat while the GWR has also laid on Punch and Judy and children’s entertainment on both days". 

“It’s going to be a real fun day for everyone!”

Frequent steam trains run from 10.30am at Toddington and from 10.15am at Cheltenham Racecourse stations to meet Postman Pat at Winchcombe station.  There’s plenty of  free car parking at both Toddington and Cheltenham Racecourse, but no parking or admission at Winchcombe station. 

Normal train fares apply - £11 for adults, children 3-15 £6.50 and senior citizens £9.50.  A family ticket, for up to two adults and three children, costs just £30 and tickets are valid for as many train rides as you like on the day of issue.

The award-winning GWR, which recently carried its one-millionth passenger, is entirely run by volunteers.
