All along the line


Saturday 15th June - all day

You will be able to buy a special ticket taking you to all the stations along the Didcot to Oxford railway line, so you can hop on and hop off wherever you like and enjoy the celebrations at any or all of the stations. This ticket will also allow entry to the Didcot Railway Centre on the day.

There will be:

  • A railway photo competition for all ages
  • A flypast along the line by the Red Arrows (subject to availability)
  • The Flying Scotsman will leave Didcot at about 8:40am and pass along the line to Oxford, hauling a railtour bound for Worcester
