Quainton News Archive - Quainton News No. 63 - Summer 1987

Stop Press and News in Brief

Due to pressure of space, a number of items have had to be held over until the next issue. These include details of a new coal hopper wagon (mentioned briefly in the Steam Heritage article), the latest on the restoration of Mk I CK No. 15319, which is nearing completion, photos of Hunslet diesel No. 7016 and of work in progress on LMS box van No. 34676, plus news of the publication of a site ramble, which went on sale on 7th June. No. 64 will also bring you details of recent changes in Society officers and heads of department and full details of a very exciting event planned for next year. Finally, the Open Days Department are still anxiously looking for a new roster clerk and the lack of such a person is causing not a little difficulty - any takers?

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1987 and so does not reflect events in the 27+ 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.
