As part of an event on Sunday 26 April we held a raffle for a unique plate painted by local artist Charlie Davies.
Didcot Railway Centre has again teamed up with Pendon Museum, Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway, Cholsey and Wallingford Railway, Steam (the Museum of the Great Western Railway) and the Swindon & Cricklade Railway, to offer visitors discounts on future visits.
The Mayday weekend gala event (2-4 May) will feature visiting GWR locomotives ... and the relaunch of Prairie Tank No. 4144 after overhaul.

Welcome to Didcot Railway Centre

Access from Didcot West (Foxhall Road) Car Park
The footbridge from the large APCOA Car Park to Didcot Parkway Station (and hence the Railway Centre) is to be replaced over the next few weeks, as part of the Great Western Mainline Electrification project. A temporary footbridge will be in place whilst the old footbridge is demolished and a new one erected, but there may be changes to the access route from the car park over the temporary footbridge. These will be clearly signposted by Network Rail.
