The Great Western Society at Didcot Railway Centre is proud to announce that they have been granted the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

The company that produced ‘Trainspotting Live’ from Didcot last year were so impressed with our Transfer Shed that they have nominated it for the Shed of the Year award.

The National Railway Museum’s ‘Flying Scotsman’ will be visiting Didcot in August 2017.
