    An Impressive Collection

    The Centre boasts one of the largest private railway collections in the country with many steam locomotives from express passenger types to the humble shunting engine, as well as numerous interesting items of rolling stock. These include a coach from the Royal Train of 1901 and another used by Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower for wartime planning meetings in 1944.

    Rewley Road Visitor Centre

    Skilfully moved brick by brick from the centre of Oxford, this historic structure was originally built in 1851 using techniques identical to the Great Exhibition building The Crystal Palace. In its new location it provides the perfect setting for displays of historic railway locomotives, carriages and small items.
