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.

Steam Day

Star Tugs Weekend

Great trip. I'd come all the way from NZ and was not disappointed! Love to be able to wander around the yard and sheds and not have it dumbed down like other places. Very friendly people and great photos! I went on a non running day, so kids were scarce, good for us seasoned anoraks. Kind regards to Didcot.
