The Great Western Society has the old engine sheds at Didcot They are on a large site in a triangle of lines. The Main Didcot line station which is on the Great Western Main line is on one side. The London to Oxford line is on the other and the Swindon to Oxford line on the other side.


The Society was offered the use of the engine shed at Didcot that had become redundant.


The Society moved in the engine shed at Didcot with just 3 GWR locomotives and a some carriages in 1967. Its is now the Didcot Railway Centre with the best collection of GWR engines and rolling stock.
