There is a mention of the Railway in Twvyer Street in the Gloucester Journal dated 28th January 1871. There is also a reference to the Railway in Millbrook Street in the 1879 Gloucester Directory. This suggests that the Railway (Inn) was on the corner of Millbrook Street and Twyver Street. The pub was just south of the present day Horton Road railway level crossing.
