We are very fortunate indeed here at Didcot Railway Centre with our vast collection of historic locomotives, artefacts and memorabilia that forms our world-famous museum telling the story of the Great Western Railway and its employees. For our volunteers and staff there are objects of great interest everywhere around the centre, each item unique to keeping the greatest railway company on the rails.
Our Tuesday Treasures blog is designed to share this vast and historically important collection so enjoy our deep dive into the rich history in our Museum and Archives.

With so many spending more time at home than planned, are you stuck for ideas? Why not do a jigsaw! The Great Western Railway produced a large selection of games and puzzles for their customers, just look at the selection here we have in our Museum and Archive! With brightly coloured pictures of railway scenes and locomotives from the GWR they would keep young minds, and adults, happy for hours!
