Quainton Guide 1979

Small Relics Museum

The Small Relics Museum is housed in the Restoration Building in the down yard, and has FREE admission for all visitors.

Our changing and varied display contains items from the earliest days of steam and shows relics collected locally from lines planned and operated in this area of Buckinghamshire. Some exhibits, such as maps, notices, tools for maintenance and operating, timetables, photographic material and oil lamps are relics of lines from their construction and opening to the end of steam operation or closure. Literature and models of railways, reminiscent to many of boyhood days are displayed along with pictures and Railwayana to recall those proud days of rail travel of the Private Companies.

Although our collection is very extensive, we are always pleased to receive donations of suitable items, or know of anything that the owner would be prepared to place on loan to us, and anyone prepared to do either is asked to contact the Curator, c/o Quainton Station in the first instance. All letters will be acknowledged, and any items entrusted to our care will be well looked after.

Curator and his staff will be pleased to answer questions during your visit which we hope will be a pleasant one.
