Permanent Way Report

One of our more recent projects, the down yard ground frame, has been operational since November 08. This makes shunting a lot easier. Instead of routinely changing two sets of points, the Shunter need only change the points to the freight line and then the Wembley yard points when the vintage train stock is required for service.

We still have a lot of work to do. In particular the permanent way hut and the bank to VAMES, which may be a workweek job. Your help with the work and support with funds to buy ballast would be appreciated.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 2009 and so does not reflect events in the 5+ 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.
