Festive Raffle 2020 - help raise money for our Diamond Jubilee Fund - Buy Tickets

Just had my first steam trip out of the year!
Enjoying hugely the fabulous and now very well Covid-secure safely organised Didcot Railway Centre. Many thanks and congratulations to all the volunteers here doing a simply-arranged friendly but clearly safe service. Their "We're good to go!" badge is definitely deserved.
