Didcot Railway Station

The main demonstration line at Didcot runs the entire length of the Centre, a distance of nearly half a mile. Starting adjacent to the entrance, it runs along the Centre's eastern boundary, paralleling Network Rail's 'east curve'. On running days you will usually be able to ride on a train formed of coaches from the 1930s hauled by one our larger steam locomotives. King Edward II on the TPO The platform opposite the Railway Centre entrance is of a prefabricated concrete construction, based on the design of materials recovered from Eynsham station. These are complemented by a replica Great Western style waiting room. Near to the station you can see an example of the Exchange Apparatus traditionally used to transfer mail bags to and from the Royal Mail's Travelling Post Office trains.
