See our unique collection of Great Western Railway steam engines, coaches, wagons, buildings and small relics; and a recreation of Brunel's broad gauge railway. Join us in our rural setting based around the original 1930s engine shed. The Railway Centre is open every weekend throughout the year and open daily in the summer.
We run a young volunteers scheme. Young volunteers are between the ages of 11 and 16 years and must be members of the Great Western Society. Our Young Volunteers tell us that they: - are interested in steam engines - want to have fun together with others who are interested in railways - are looking to develop engineering and other skills - accept that responsibilities go with being young members - get satisfaction from their achievements and the teamwork involved.
