Successful Weekend at Didcot Railway Centre

Thank you to everyone who came along to Didcot Railway Centre over the bank holiday weekends – it was great to meet you all.

Saturday 24th May was a particularly important day for us as it was our ‘grand signing’ of the agreement between Didcot Railway Centre and Swindon Panel Society, which cements our future as a permanent exhibit at DRC and the commitment for the construction of the new building.

Heavy rain was forecast all day but the sun came out at precisely the right time for Tom O’Flaherty (SPS Chairman), Richard Croucher (GWS Chairman) and Ann Middleton (GWS Commercial Manager) to sign the agreement in the presence of Tim Leighton (Network Rail General Manager, Western Route) and Scott Wilgrove (Didcot’s Town Mayor and also a volunteer guard!), in view of many members, supporters and cameras.
