A bit about us

Buckinghamshire Railway Centre: Keeping the Age of Steam Alive! Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is a 25-acre working steam museum with one of the UK’s largest collections of locomotives, rolling stock and railway memorabilia. We are open every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday from March-October, and Wednesdays during the school holidays.

Our Steaming Days are great fun for all the family, when you can take a ride on a full-size steam train, and also, for a small fee, you can go for a ride on our miniature ride-on steam railway - pictured here - great fun for all the family!

As well as the 1890s station building, we have an impressive glass-roofed visitor centre – the former Oxford Rewley Road station – with café, gift shop, stunning Royal Dining Coach from 1901, and a coach used by Winston Churchill and Dwight D Eisenhower for secret war strategy planning meetings. You can also take a tour of our fabulous exhibition hall housing magnificently restored exhibits, with tracks displaying priceless vehicles awaiting restoration. Our Travelling Post Office tells the story of moving mail by rail. Visitors can even have a go at sorting mail!

We hold several special events throughout the year, not just Days out with Thomas™, for which we are famous, but also steam locomotive galas and historic transport rallies – buses, commercial vehicles, full-size and miniature traction engines, not forgetting our Father Christmas events! Visit www.bucksrailcentre.org for all the dates of our special events.

Our visitor centre also doubles as a beautiful venue for weddings, parties or other private functions. Visit our website for more information and images.

Offering free parking, excellent access, picnic areas and indoor attractions, the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre makes a great day out for the whole family!
