On all these days the panel will be open for visitors to view and have a go at operating under the guidance of our volunteer demonstrators. Visitors of all ages are welcome to learn about how railway signalling was operated in the 1960s-2000s era, and everyone is encouraged to have a go!

At all other times the panel is visible, through a large glass wall, but not operating, on all days that Didcot Railway Centre is open.

The frequency of opening is determined by volunteers who give their time to demonstrate the panel to visitors. You can join in and become a demonstrator.

See the Didcot Railway Centre website for full details of DRC events.

SPS Members are very welcome to visit the panel on these days (please show your SPS membership card at the ticket office to gain entry), but please remember those demonstrators who are rostered are the ones responsible for the panel and its presentation to the public on these days.
