We've got the tools- help us finish this job - and many others!

It is not just brute force and ignorance!
Like most jobs at Quainton Road, it is a skilled trade. Join us one Sunday and find out about the vital job of track laying and maintenance.

We dig holes and pack sleepers etc. with our shovels, we don't lean on them.

If you are physically fit and have good eyesight, and are not afraid of hard work or the elements - why not give us YOUR help.

You'll be welcome!

For further details, please contact NEVILLE ROYCE (address on back page.
