Oxford 175 Express with No: 7029 'Clun Castle' - Saturday 15th June


The Didcot to Oxford branch line of the Great Western Railway opened in June 1844. On Saturday 15th June 2019 we’ll be celebrating its 175th anniversary.

As a very special contribution to the 175th anniversary celebrations, Vintage Trains are running a railtour from Birmingham stations to Oxford and seperatly offering the Oxford 175 Luncheon Circular railtour from Oxford Parkway & Oxford (click for more details)

This will be a very fitting visit of our flagship locomotive, no. 7029 'Clun Castle'.

The Oxford 175 Express will depart Solihull for Oxford via Banbury, picking up along the way at Dorridge, Warwick Parkway and Banbury stations.

We are offering Standard Class with the option to purchase in advance  Bacon Rolls for the morning journet to Oxford and an Afternoon Tea Picnic Box on the return.
