Didcot Railway Centre is just one of the places to enjoy on this day as we celebrate the opening of the Didcot to Oxford branch line of the Great Western Railway in June 1844. This photograph shows Fire Fly class locomotive ‘Centaur’ of the type that would have hauled the first trains on the line.

There will be events at or near all five stations along the line – Didcot, Appleford, Culham, Radley and Oxford

• Engines in steam
