Situated on platforms 2 & 3, the bookshop stocks a comprehensive selection of items of railway interest including books by all the major publishers, postcards, badges, pens, black and white and colour prints, fibre glass reproductions of railway signs, etc., etc.

Of special mention are some of our own items, exclusive to Quainton :

BEATTIE BADGES - Price 5p, Yellow, with the outline of 30585 in black. Especially for the children, and very popular.

ENGRAVED PLAQUES - The Beattie is also the subject of our very smart brass plaque, price 50p. These make excellent Christmas or birthday presents.

STOCKBOOK - Still going strong is our illustrated stockbook, price 20p. (post 24p.), containing 29 photographs with much technical information about our locomotives and rolling stock. Essential for full appreciation of what you see.
