Two enthusiams in one. Here is the donations box for the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway, a preserved line that runs from Toddington, where the box is, through Winchcombe to Cheltenham Race Course. I'm not quite sure where Warwickshire comes into it, but I believe the 'The Honeybourne Line' as they now call it once ran up to Stratford-upon-Avon in the neighbouring county. This beautiful Victorian pillar box has now been repainted in the Great Western Railway's original light and dark stone colours, as is the footbridge behind it. Which, if you're ever in this delightful neck of the Cotswolds woods, you'll see couldn't be more complementary to the landscape. I've yet to travel on this line, but intend to do so this year as the GWR celebrates it's 175th anniversary. Toot toot!
