Take a Step Back in Time with the Real Steam Story

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 three famous locomotives:
No. 4073 Caerphilly Castle, No. 3717 City of Truro, 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.
Look out for our occasional Saturday tours of the Museum too!  
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
