News Graphic


The Great Western Railway and Metropolitan Railway were inextricably linked from the very start of underground railways ...

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.

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

Welcome to Didcot Railway Centre

The Railway Centre is now open at weekends and daily from 24 May.
