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 in the UK.

Great Western Wagons at The Didcot Railway Centre 

 This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is a webe site on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, wagons like this page, any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
