    A source of regular confusion over the years, sometimes even to volunteers. The official name of the railway is The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway and the correct abbreviation is GWR. That is what appears on the Rule Book and all operating documentation and it’s why the line’s logo says ‘GWR’ not ‘GWSR’. The name of the operating company only is the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway plc, named as such I believe simply because there were objections back in the early 80s when it was formed to the use of the abbreviation GWR from a local Bristol radio station AIUI.
