Due to our current train configuration requirements the TOAD brake van has been coupled to the end of the passenger train. For a limited time Telford Steam Railway is offering the fantastic opportunity for visitors to have a trip in the GWR Toad brake van, for a £1 charge per person per trip on top of normal admission charges.
The Toad brake van (pictured below) features an open veranda at the rear, along with a functional carriage with stove and seating. The Toad offers a much better view of the track as you travel along the line and we quite often see buzzards and other wildlife.
If you wish to ride in the Toad please let the shop staff know when you purchase your tickets or check in with your membership card.
