Our priority restoration is currently restoring 1466 - the Centre's first locomotive - in time for our 60th Anniversary in 2021. Around £60,000 is needed to finish the work. See how you can help.
There are plenty of other interesting projects going on too:
- 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:
