Didcot Railway Push and Pull Steam Event @ Didcot Railway Center
May 25 @ 10:30 am – 4:00 pm
Didcot Railway Push and Pull Steam Event @ Didcot Railway Center | England | United Kingdom

This is a Steam Day, so you will be able to view their collections of locomotives, coaches, wagons and buildings as described in the Centre Guide and in their Guidebook (available for purchase from their shop or at the entrance) and enjoy the various facilities and exhibits.

Discover Brunel’s Broad Gauge and the 1930s Engine Shed. Visit the GWT Museum and their restoration workshops. Watch the modern pasenger and freight trains from their Picnic Area.

You can walk around the only surviving steam age loco depot in its original condition, and get up close to their large collection of locomotives which are so much more impressive when seen from ground level. Why not explore the rest of the centre including the Archie Trail, the Science Learning & Railways interactive exhibition and visit their shop and refreshment room?

In addition, you will be able to:

  • Ride in coaches from the 1930s behind some of their Great Western steam locomotives, or in their Steam Railmotor or Diesel Railcar. We have two running lines, ‘The Main Line’ and ‘The Branch Line’ with trains normally running on either or both of them. You may ride as many times as you like as there is no extra charge
  • Watch the trains go past. There are frequent journeys on their running lines so you will have plenty of opportunity to take photos from vantage points alongside the tracks as well as ride on the trains

Check their Locomotive Roster to see what we expect to be running on your next visit.

You can buy tickets online at any time prior to the day of your visit – or buy them at the entrance on arrival.

Lambourn Silver Circle @ British Legion Club | Lambourn | England | United Kingdom

The Silver Circle is a club which provides an opportunity for older people in the village to meet socially. Membership is available to anyone aged 55+ and both ladies and gentlemen are equally welcome!

We get together in the afternoon of the 3rd Wednesday of each month, and a variety of activities are organised throughout the year – for example, illustrated talks, lighthearted quizzes and bingo. Meetings are held at the British Legion Club in Big Lane, and the afternoon is rounded off with tea and biscuits. Guests are always welcome too, for a small fee.

We also arrange 2 or 3 outings each year, and non-members are welcome to join us. The cost of the outings is subsidised for members, from our fundraising.

The annual membership fee is amazingly low! (currently £4).
