Reservations will be closed until further notice.

It is with regret that Elegant Excursions will cease operation on   the Gloucester Warwickshire Steam Railway, as from the 10th August 2014.

It is with regret that I have to inform you of this news. This decision had to be made, due to circumstances totally beyond the control of Elegant Excursions. It was the plan that we would cease operation on the GWSR within the next couple of years, due to the rising costs and charges bestowed upon Elegant Excursions. This decision was brought forward somewhat, by the news of the sale of the coaches which Elegant Excursions has used for the past nineteen years, by the owner. This obviously forced an earlier cease of operation than was planned.

Many of you have joined me on the last few trains and it has as always, been a real pleasure to serve you on board, but extremely sad to say good bye. I would like to thank everyone who has traveled on board the Elegant Excursions over the years. There have been some memorable nights, such as the Night at the Proms, 60s & 70’s, 40s & 50s, Jazz Nights, Murder Mystery Nights and not forgetting our Titanic Night.

Everyone who has booked on events beyond the 10th August 2014, will be fully re embursed. This is hoped to be completed by the end of August. As this has been quite a mammoth task, I am sorry for the delay in returning what is due to you. What is more important to me, is you not being able to travel with us this year, which I sincerely apologise for.

If the situation should change in the future, which we hope will do, I will inform everyone, but I will from time to time in the coming year, update information on this website. You never know what may transpire!

I hope that at sometime in the future, I shall be able to say to you once again;

Welcome aboard

From myself and All the crew, until we meet again.
