Notes:
The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1969 and so does not reflect events in the 48+ years since publication. The text is repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary.

This was a typed and duplicated list, the quality of which very much reflects the technology of the day. It is presented here for historical interest only.
