Visitors


Over the years as well as the longer term residents at Quainton, a number of locomotives and other items, have made short temporary visits, sometimes of only a few weeks. For a few of the visitors the visit was exceedingly fleeting as they called into the station on a mainline tour, to deliver stock or formed part of the Quaintonian shuttle service. All these visitors, even if occasional, are an important feature of the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre offering. Passing network trains not stopping in the platform are not included.


Locomotives, DMUs etc.
