Network rail are refusing to renew the lease on the Depot at didcot. this would be a massive loss for preservation in the UK.

there is a number 10 petition online at

i am not much of a GWR fan but its so much more than railways. its about social history through the ages. there is everything there from early broad gauge to some of the last loco's built by the GWR. from grotty suburban's to the top link super saloons. it really is a wonderful site. if its lost the collection could be spread across the country and many features such as the famous broad gauge test track and the traverser would be lost.

its also one of the only urban preservation sites. (the only one?) and just about the only one that's really easy to get to from London in a day trip.
