Living Museum of the Great Western Railway


At Didcot you can see over forty coaches, representing the most comprehensive collection of coaches of any of the pre-nationalised companies. On running days you can ride aboard coaches from the 1940s, or even earlier, on our demonstration lines. Some vehicles are regularly used in our trains, others are more usually viewed as static items inside the carriage shed venturing outside only for use on special occasions, whilst still others are in an unrestored state awaiting the attentions of our Carriage and Wagon team. Note that some of the unrestored vehicles are stored in an area of the carriage shed which is not generally accessible to the public for safety reasons.
