On Saturdays 10 and 31 January and 21 March, between 11:30 and 12:15 Didcot Railway Centre will be running more of its popular Little Engineers Pre-School Workshops for children aged 3-6 years.

Just before 11am on Remembrance Sunday, 9 November, the Mayor of Didcot, Scott Wilgrove, will be leading a rededication of the Great Western Railway's Roll of Honour, which is displayed inside the refreshment room at Didcot Railway Centre. All are welcome to attend.

Construction work has begun on our building which will house the 1960s signalling panel from Swindon as part of an interactive display illustrating the history of the train 'Control Centre', on GWR territory - from Railway Policeman to the Thames Valley Signalling Centre.
