The Railway Inn was by the Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company works. The Railway Inn was situated very near to the present day St Anns Way, at the entrance to the Peel Centres.

The Railway Inn would have been popular with workers from the ‘Wagon Works’, Feilding & Platt and Morelands Match Factory. The pub had a successful skittle team.  The Railway Inn was demolished in the early 1980’s to make way for the Inner Ring Road.
