Transfer shed - Didcot Railway Centre
Transfer shed - Didcot Railway Centre
This was used to transfer goods and passengers from broad gauge on the right to standard gauge on the left. This has been relocated from nearby and is a fascinating survivor from one of Brunel's less successful periods (to be fair the GWR was a great success but he failed to convince others to adopt broad gauge).
