Meet the Railway Workers and get to climb aboard Caerphilly - Copy.jpg


Meet the Railway Workers takes place fortnightly on Saturdays. 

Whatever your age, our friendly team of volunteers will add to the STEAM experience as you tour the Museum. 

They will welcome you aboard two famous locomotives: No. 4073 Caerphilly Castle and No. 6000 King George V!

Expect to hear some fascinating anecdotes of what it was like to be a GWR engine driver, fireman, labourer or an office worker at GWR's Swindon Works. 

You'll even get to find out how the controls worked on these great engines!

Our volunteers are also happy to help with any questions you may have about the many GWR locomotives and artefacts we have on display at STEAM. 

This wonderful experience is free with standard admission and to STEAM Season Ticket holders.



Please see below for dates:


July 8 and 22 
August 5 and 19
September 2, 16 and 30
October 14 and 28
November 11 and 25
December 9 and 23
We look forward to welcoming you aboard very soon!
