Day out With Thomas

Everyone's Favourite Engine visits Didcot - March 30th-31st

The Railway Centre is open daily until 6th October
(except for 3rd April, when it will be closed to the public).

Exhibition Only Days - Visited on a Friday lunchtime, very quiet so was able to wander around and explore. Discovered volunteers working on restoration projects who were all happy to explain what was going on. Lunch in the refreshment room was bonus with a hot meal cooked to order. Parking across road at the pay and display carpark was easy and just a short walk through the mainline station subway to gain access to the centre.
