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.
The building has been rented from Network Rail since early 2014 by Entikera Limited (trading as Mpfineartprinting
Click or tap link to open a new page and visit the Mpfineartprinting website). It is therefore a working environment and so it is not possible to accommodate unexpected visitors. Prospective visitors should therefore always contact Entikera to arrange an appointment to view inside the original Waiting Room and Station Office where a small selection of items from our memorabilia collection may be seen.
Free copies of our picture postcards, descriptive leaflets, Discovery Trail booklets and souvenir tickets are always available upon request 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 old ticket office building is Grade II* listed and so it and the original (now unused) Platform 2 upon which it stands should remain untouched by progress.
Heritage Open Days 14th & 15th September 2024
We are very pleased to announce that Entikera Ltd. will be opening the Old Ticket Office to the public as part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme. 2024 marks both the 10th anniversary of their moving into the building, and 180 years since it was built.
The theme of this year's national Heritage Open Days is Routes, Networks and Connections and we will have on display original signal box equipment, models of local coal wagons, and much more with some items of memorabilia on sale and free souvenirs to take away.
Come and explore inside the building and its surroundings using our free Discovery Trail booklet, and see if you can find the bullet hole where a passenger was shot in 1868.
