Preservation history

The North Gloucestershire Railway (NGR) is a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge railway running alongside the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway at Toddington. It was built in 1985 when the Dowty Railway Preservation Society needed a new home for its collection of narrow gauge rolling stock. The rail used on the railway was purchased from the Southend Pier Railway.
