We are now open every day through the 2019 season until 6 October, with train rides every weekend until 22 September. All our train rides are in genuine vintage carriages of Great Western Railway design dating from the end of the 19th century or the first half of the 20th century.

We look forward to welcoming you in the unique atmosphere of our 1930s Engine Shed, housing a collection of Great Western Railway locomotives for you to marvel at their huge size when seen from ground level! They tell the story of the railway’s policy of standardisation from 1900 to 1950. No other railway in Britain achieved this on quite the same scale. Some footplates are open for you to sample the controls.

In the 25 acres around the engine shed we have developed a railway setting using original buildings and equipment brought from other parts of the system, and new ones constructed in traditional style. There is Brunel’s broad gauge railway housed in the Transfer Shed dating from the 1860s, a Signalling Centre with interactive exhibits, even an original Air Raid Shelter from 1940. We have a Museum and Archive, souvenir and book shop, and refreshment room.

Our large carriage shed has a display area in which to view some of the historic vehicles. We open at 10.30am with last admission 3.30pm. For more information see our website: www.didcotrailwaycentre.org.uk

Recent work on the rebuild of Carriage 11 has involved the manufacture of lots of templates and mock ups to ensure the carriage will be something very special when completed. The new dividing wall has been made and will soon be fitted within the carriage. Also seen here are mock ups for some of the internal detailing work being made in house by our skilled team of craftsmen.

We are very sad to announce that on Saturday evening our brand new play area was vandalised. Young plants and flowers have also been snapped and destroyed.

We have a small gardening group many of them being volunteers who spend hours of their time maintaining our gardens to keep them looking beautiful for everyone to enjoy.

If anyone witnessed or has any information as to who carried out this mindless act of vandalism please contact 101.
If your visiting and notice anything/anyone suspicious please inform a member of staff.

We are so proud of all the hard work our team put in to turning, what many thought to be a lost cause, in to a beautiful carriage reminiscent of its era as part of Channel 4's Great Rail Restoration.
If you'd like to see the carriage 'in the flesh' it is now being displayed in the Carriage and Wagons Workshop at the Railway.

Missed the show? Here's the link to catch up www.channel4.com/programmes/great-rail-restorations-with-peter-snow
