Buckinghamshire Railway Centre


Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is a working steam engine museum where you can step back in time as you stroll amongst the giants of the steam age displayed at its spacious 25 acre site.


The Centre has 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.  The collection includes many steam, diesel locomotives together with other forms of motive power, including Metropolitan No.1 and the Beattie Well Tank. There is also rolling stock from the 1870's through to the 1970's. Two gems in the Collection are the 1901 coach used latterly in the Royal Train together with a specially converted vehicle from 1943 used as a mobile meeting room by Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower.
