Quainton Road back on the National Rail Network?
Derek Mulquin provided this ticket and points out that it would suggest that we were back on the National network? Derek explains why:
As usual, the charter train on the Bank Holiday of 27th August 07 between Aylesbury and Quainton Road. Aylesbury Station always sells tickets for this service using Edmonson type card tickets supplied by QRS. However, on this occasion they used their own current NR (BR) tickets as can be seen below, thus suggesting that for the first time in since 1963 (when regular passenger train services to Quainton Road ceased) Quainton Road was back on the National Rail Network!
