Buckinghamshire Railway Centre's Mission


"To be a leading working period railway and museum in the UK by providing high levels of activity, variety, general interest and interpretation, appealing to family groups of all ages."

BRC's Core Objectives

  • To collect, restore and maintain a comprehensive collection of items of railway and associated transport history in order to provide variety for visitors and film makers and to enable industrial, metropolitan and rural country station scenes to be recreated and interpreted.
  • To fully demonstrate period locomotives and rolling stock from both the Centre's and other Collections by providing adequate facilities to operate trains, with appropriate servicing facilities; and to operate several simultaneously.
  • To develop the BRC and if available, a length of the line which passes through the Centre, to make it a recognised tourist attraction and education centre of high repute.
  • To provide a permanent and safe base for the housing and display of the Collection and privately owned items in conditions which minimize deterioration.
  • To provide a recreational and leisure activity for members and other affiliated organisations which, in turn, further these core objectives.
