Friends of Broadway Station

Friends of Broadway Station

Our shop has a new sign, please help to support us. The Bric a Brac shop is run by the Friends of Broadway Station and all donations are used for the continued development and enhancement of the Station.

An explanation as to why we have a new name....

The Broadway Area Group, to which the Friends of Broadway Station were affiliated, was wound up at an EGM on 21 July. The BAG was an anomaly within the structure of the Railway, being affiliated to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway Trust (GWRT), and not a department of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway Plc (GWSR), which owns the Railway's infrastructure and operates trains. The GWRT is a registered charity which supports the activities of the GWSR Plc. This historical quirk has now been sorted out with the direct affiliation of the "Friends of Broadway Station" (previously part of the BAG) to the Trust, and the formation of a Broadway Station Maintenance Dept under the Plc structure, mirroring the structure at the other stations - i.e. a department of the Plc to look after the station and a support /fund raising group (FoBS) affiliated to the GWRT.

  1. Having made a visit to what is a truly fantastic achievement by you all and having followed the blog from the start of the signal box were amazed at how good everything looks. We travelled by train to statford, bus to broadway, steam train to cheltenham and train back to new street. We felt that maybe the refreshment rooms could be a pub? could be a good addition to the caravan club, similar to Kidderminster and Bridgenorth with the svr and a pub at each end as it was a long walk to the sandford ale house in cheltenham. Thanks again for a nice day out we are both members of the gwsr and love what your doing Mark and Tim.
