The former Riviera depot at Southall is leased by the G.W.R. Preservation Group from Network Rail. The society have various diesel and steam locomotives on display, and is also used for the stabling of coaching stock and the Flying Scotsman.

By Car - From the M4 eastbound, leave at junction 3, taking the 1st exit onto the A312 Hayes By-Pass. At the 1st roundabout, take the 3rd exit into Hayes road and continue, going straight on at the mini island. At the next roundabout, take the 2nd exit ( straight on ) into Western Road and follow for roughly, 1.5 miles. Upon reaching a crossroads, turn left at the lights into King Street and proceed to the mini roundabout, taking the 1st exit ( A3005 ), passing Southall railway station on your right. At this point, proceed for 0.4 miles, turning right at the traffic lights junction with the A4020 Uxbridge Road. Continue along and immediately after passing under the railway bridge, turn right into Windmill Lane ( A4127 ). Upon reaching the 1st island, take the 2nd exit into the industrial site, which is Armstrong Way. Go through the security point, pass over the island, and follow it round to the right, taking the 1st left into the centre's car park.

Alternatively, if on foot, turn right out of Southall station, and right again into Park Avenue. Just after passing Barratt Industrial Estate, immediately opposite Green Drive, take the public footpath under the railway and the centre is on your right. Walking time 15-20 mins.

Current Allocation:
