Great Western Railway Engine Shed

Didcot Railway Centre is a substantial working heritage rail museum adjacent to the modern day Didcot Parkway station on the Great Western line in Oxfordshire.

Based around the original Great Western Railway Engine Shed built in 1932, the centre also features a Coal Stage, a working 70 foot turntable, and modern locomotive works, among many fascinating buildings including the Great Western Trust museum.

Shed Features

The main shed itself features four tracks each providing 200 feet (60m) of covered space. Each track can accommodate three tender engines or around six tank engines and is perfect for showcasing the Centre’s 24 steam locomotives, two diesel locomotives and other railcars and railmotors.
