Quainton News Archive - Quainton News No. 13 - September 1972

News in Brief

The former Metropolitan Vickers gas turbine locomotive, 18100 which was converted to an experimental electric locomotive, E2001 and had stood on the track with two LMS vans ½ mile west of Akeman Street station for at least three years was moved to Rugby on 10th May.

7715 was derailed on 29th May at South ground frame. All members are urged to read and study the report which has been prepared on this incident and to learn the lessons it tells.

The Quainton News is going a long way. Member Mr J E Leary has sent copies to his Parker cousins in Michigan, USA.

Mr F Brentnall confirms that the signpost still reads 'Winslow Road Station', see News No. 11, On the Verney Line, by Mr F S White.
