Illustrated Programme No. 1 Easter 1972

Welcome to Quainton

The committee and members of the Quainton Railway Society welcome you to Quainton and sincerely hope that you have an enjoyable visit. This programme gives brief details of the Society and of the various attractions here during the weekend. It has been produced at the request of visitors in the past, and any suggestions or comments will be welcome for future editions. There is something for all the family to enjoy, and we hope that you will all take a ride behind a steam train, bringing back memories to anyone over 21, and being a unique experience for the youngsters. There is a choice of an ancient six-wheeler coach, or open wagons, throughout the weekend, the latter being by far the most popular.

At the time of writing this it looks very much as if we will only have a limited amount of coal available as, due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to obtain more supplies. We feel sure that you will understand, therefore, if we are unable to run as many locomotives as we would wish under normal conditions.

Once again, we wish you an enjoyable visit and hope to see you again later in the year. If you would like to become a member, our membership secretary will be very pleased to hear from you. Details on back cover. In the interests of safety and consideration of your fellow travellers please bear the following points in mind:


  • Keep inside the roped boundaries and do not trespass on British Rail property
  • Cross the main BR line ONLY by the footbridge
  • Place litter in the bins provided
  • Take care when walking over or near track. Every precaution has been taken to ensure your safety, but remember that locomotives, like cars, cannot stop dead.
