Didcot Railway Centre

A remarkable survivor! GWR Castle Class 4-6-0 no 4079 Pendennis Castle sits quietly in the Great Western Society's steam shed at Didcot after being repatriated from Australia and restored. Didcot steam shed now houses an amazing collection of historic GWR steam locomotives saved from the scrapyard and often recreates the sulphurous atmosphere of a steam shed in days gone by. Two operational railway lines within the museum provides a full demonstration of working steam with beautifully restored passenger carriages.
