Welcome to the Old Ticket Office at Culham
Here you will find out about the history of the building, together with photos old and new and, by following the YouTube link, view videos of some of the heritage trains that can be seen passing through. Selecting the 'ABOUT' menu will lead not only to a wealth of background information, including the station's 175th anniversary in 2019, but also to resources which are free to download and include our construction sheets for any potential modeller of Culham. The 'BITS & BOBS' menu is the place to find interesting asides, and the 'MEMORABILIA' menu keeps expanding as we add more information about our ever growing collection of models, original GWR and other associated items, some of which is on display at the station.
The building has been rented from Network Rail since early 2014 by Entikera Limited (trading as Mpfineartprinting

Prospective visitors should therefore always contact Entikera to arrange an appointment to view inside the original Waiting Room and Station Office where many items from the memorabilia collection are on permanent display. The memorabilia collection is updated periodically and so items such as GWR books and genuine GWR wooden jigsaws may become available for sale from time to time.
Free copies of our picture postcards, descriptive leaflets, Discovery Trail booklets and souvenir tickets are always available during office hours.
The electrification project was slowly creeping towards us and together with the planned platform extensions at the station we expected to see big changes. Current information suggests that nothing much will now happen here before 2025. The Ticket Office is listed and so it and the original (now unused) Platform 2 should remain untouched by progress.
We have made a number of online jigsaws featuring the station and items from our memorabilia collection. Let us know if you enjoy doing them.
