Quainton Guide 1979


Can you help us in any of the following ways? If so, we will be pleased to hear from you.

POSTERS. Can you display a poster for us, either permanently or prior to our Open Days? In a shop or factory, perhaps, or anywhere that it will be seen by a number of people. If so, our publicity department will be pleased to hear from you.

STAMPS. All British commemorative, Foreign and Commonwealth stamps fetch quite a good price. Please bring them to Quainton when you come. Not, please, the ordinary low denomination British stamps.

TRADING STAMPS of any colour can be exchanged for goods. Either full books or loose stamps. Leave them at the shop.

ENAMEL SIGNS. As you will see, a number of enamel signs have been put up along the platform by members, and these greatly enhance the appearance of the station. Unfortunately they are not easy to get hold of now, so if you know of any hidden in someone's garden, see if they will let you bring them to Quainton. Favourite places are chicken runs and rabbit hutches, where their value is not fully appreciated.

PHOTOGRAPHS. If you take any good black and white photographs on your visit we would like to see them with a view to possible reproduction in a Society publication. We would also like any good colour slides you may take.

ADVERTISING. This helps cut down the cost of the Guide to you. Would your firm like to advertise in the next edition, and so make it bigger and better? We can also offer wall space in our restoration building. Rates are very competitive, and are available on request.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1979 and so does not reflect events in the 38+ 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.
