Living Museum of the Great Western Railway

Off the Rails

Mix Steampunk with actual Steam! - April 27th and 28th

See our unique collection of Great Western Railway steam engines, coaches, wagons, buildings and small relics based around the original 1930s engine shed

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.
