The Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Museum was set up on 25th March 2016. Our aim and object is preserve the history and heritage of the Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company and all other associated organisations. We celebrate the rich history of railway and transport heritage from the Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company Limited and associated organisations from 1800's through to 1986 and in some cases the present day.
Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Museum is staffed by volunteers, some of which have been involved with railways and transport since the British Railways in the 1960's. Come and visit (once premises have been acquired), ask questions and learn about the history of the Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company Limited and associated organisations. We aim to preserve the past and inspire the future.
Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Museum has a wide range of artefacts, relics and its first item of rolling stock currently awaiting restoration.
The Museum is currently a portable mobile travelling museum, but there is no substitute for a physical museum where you can visit and speak to knowledgeable volunteers and ask any questions you may have, so every effort is being made to acquire a plot of land or premises for the Museum to set up a base of operations and therefore at this current stage the Museum Collection is currently available to view online.
Once premises have been acquired we will be offering timed guided tours of many vehicles in our collection including our first item of rolling stock LMS Ventilated Goods Van M187085. Please note that due to limited space and access, some vehicles may not be suitable for small children, (dis)abled guests or those with claustrophobia.
The museum and our restoration work is run entirely by volunteers and financed by charitable donations.
Think you could help? We'd love to hear from you.
Please note: Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Museum is not yet a registered Charity but is looking to register in the very near future.
