Nineteen of the twenty photographs in the centre spread [above] were taken at Quainton. The odd one was taken elsewhere and is nothing to do with our Society. The competition is for you to identify the locomotives which are illustrated and to single out the intruder!

Write your name and address at the top of a sheet of paper and then list the photographs with the description of the locomotive as given in our Stock Book. The 'odd man out' should be given as 'The Stranger', and any member who successfully identifies it and its location will receive an extra mention in dispatches but no additional prize!

Send your lists to me at:-

xx xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxx,
xxxxxx xxxxxxx,
xxxxxxxxxxx xxx xxx

Each member is allowed one entry. Only members are allowed to enter the competition. The first prize is a voucher for £3.00 and the second prize £1.50 to be spent at Quainton bookstall.

The closing date for the entries to arrive at this address is 14th January, 1973. Good luck with your application, but remember, please, the Editor's decision is final and will be based on the first correct entry submitted.

The results will be published in the March issue of 'Quainton News'.

Go on; have a go!

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.
