Special Projects

There are always plenty of interesting projects going on at Didcot Railway Centre:

  • We're restoring locomotives from scrapyard condition, and even building replicas of long extinct classes
  • We're rebuilding coaches and putting them back in to traffic
  • We're reconstructing traditional railway buildings brought to Didcot from elsewhere, and putting up new buildings which better enable us to restore, conserve and display our collections.

Here are links or information about just a few of our current projects:


Some of these projects have their own independently run web sites:
