South West Main Line Steam Company, Yeovil Junction Station, Stoford, BA22 9UU
Yeovil Railway Centre was formed in 1994 to preserve the original Southern Railway turntable installed in the late 1940’s and to provide facilities for main line steam.
Yeovil Railway Centre in Somerset, was formed in 1994 to preserve the original Southern Railway turntable installed in the late 1940’s and to provide facilities for main line steam. Since then the turntable has been overhauled and visitors can watch, from a special viewing platform, the spectacle of large steam engines being turned and serviced when they call at Yeovil Junction.
An Andrew Barclay steam engine ‘Lord Fisher’ is currently operational and provides the power for public rides on the demonstration line of 1/3 mile approx. Visitors ride either in a historic brake van or in a coach. During these Steam Days, Miniature and Model Railways are normally available together with light refreshments. There are several industrial diesels on site.
Special Events (including Model Railway, Tractors and Halloween) operate on a regular basis and of course our ever-popular Santa Specials are run in December (pre-book!).
Our Shop not only has gifts but also DVDs, new and a large selection of second hand books and other railway related items. The Shop is open during events and also Sunday mornings (10am to noon, except Christmas and New Year).
A 1864 built Transfer Shed acts as our Visitor Centre and Café. A reminder of the days when the Great Western Railway’s Broad and other Companies Standard Gauges met and the requirement for the transfer of goods between wagons. It is a very atmospheric building which is also used for meetings and exhibitions.
The Charity is run by a friendly group of volunteers who endeavour to make our visitors as welcome as possible. Please see our website for up to date details of when we are open and what's happening!
