The Grand Railway Lottery


Congratulations to all the Prize Winners and warm thanks to those members, especially our Treasurer, who worked so hard on the lottery. Our worthy Fund Raising Officer, Eric Miller, admirably demonstrated his talents by selling 1,164 tickets - so winning the bottle of champagne. Eric is planning to keep this until we go to Barry to collect 7200! Special thanks to Roger and Sandy Wornham who handled the mail order customers and to Bruce Murray who dealt with members needs and helped with the stands, markets and shows. Here is the list of lucky winners - all have been notified of their success.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1980 and so does not reflect events in the 30+ 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.
