As Easter we will display broad gauge locomotives 'Iron Duke' and ‘Fire Fly’ side by side, with ‘Fire Fly’ hauling our broad gauge passenger train on Brunel's baulk road track.

Three mighty steam locomotives, the pride of the pre-nationalisation Great Western Railway and London & North Eastern Railway will gather at Didcot Railway Centre on 5 and 6 April 2014 ...

The construction of 4709 took a major step forward at the end of 2013 when final assembly of the main frames got under way.
