Take a Step Back in Time with the Real Story of Steam 

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

You'll even get to find out how the controls worked on the great engines!
Expect to hear some fascinating anecdotes of what it was like to be a GWR engine driver, fireman or labourer; or an engineer, craftsman or office worker at one of the 'Shops' inside GWR's Swindon Works.

Our volunteers are happy to help with any questions you may have about the GWR locomotives and artefacts we have on display at STEAM.
This great experience is free with standard admission and to STEAM Season Ticket holders.
Find out more about our wonderful 'Meet the Railway Workers' volunteers by visiting Lifelong Learning's monthly blog. This month Fred Jennings shares his experience of growing up in the Railway Village in the 1930's.
