Didcot Railway Centre

Didcot Railway Centre is housed in the site of the former Didcot
locomotive depot, between Reading and Swindon on the Great
Western main line from Paddington to Bristol. It is now used to house a
collection of former Great Western locomotives and has a length of
track on which they can be operated.

These photographs were taken in March 2009.
