MORE than 100 people gathered at Gloucester Railway Station to travel through an historic route.
The passengers booked tickets to travel from Gloucester to Parkend for the first time since 1929.
The Dean Forest Railway's Multiple Unit festival, which took place this morning, saw the railway's pair of Diesel Multiple Units, joined by a visiting First Great Western Sprinter Class 150 Unit.
Andrew Woodrow, senior ticket inspector from Dean Railway Station, said: “This is the first time a train has gone from Gloucester to Parkend since 1929, it is great to see the route being used. It is great to see so many people here.”
Passenger Graham Pearson, who travelled from Birmingham, said: “I have come from Birmingham to see this train go to Parkend.”
