Wanted - Carriages


The executive committee have decided that some additional carriages are needed for our future operations and in December's 'Quainton News' you were invited to contact John Parsons with your offers of regular contributions for a fund which has been set up for the purpose. John's previous scheme for the acquisition of a BR Mark 1 coach by £10 donations is now going to be wound up and any member who has invested in the old fund may wish to withdraw his money. If so, he should write to our Treasurer. If not, (and this is our fervent wish!) he will have his contribution transferred to the new scheme. Our best thanks go to those who have helped in the past and our king-sized PLEASE help now to everyone to donate just a few new p's a week towards the new fund.


Enquiries area

Enquiries are also being made to see if we can buy a GNR six wheeler, six compartment third built in 1881 to go with our GNR Brake and another GCR bogie built in 1906 to go with the one in store in Aylesbury.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1972 and so does not reflect events in the 40+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
