Swindon Panel Demonstrations

Step into a signalman's shoes and have a go at controlling the trains - 1960s style!

Buy tickets

You can visit our latest attraction - The Signalling Centre - whenever the Railway Centre is open. There you can look at artefacts showing the evolution of railway signalling from the earliest days of the Great Western Railway through to the 1960s and even have a go at using some of the equipment.

On Swindon panel demonstration days members of the Swindon Panel Society will be present and can show you how to control the trains on a 40-mile stretch of the Great Western Railway main line using state-of-the-art technology from the 1960s!

You can buy tickets online at any time prior to the day of your visit - or buy them at the entrance on arrival.
