Buckingham Great Central Model Railway and Peter Benny

I learned with great sadness over the Christmas holidays, from his son Stephen, of the death of Peter Denny, creator of the iconic Buckingham Great Central model railway, founded in 1946. We have run videos about the model (of a fictitious branch line from just north of Quainton to Buckingham) in the cinema coach, and I will include further information on the model in the next issue.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 2010 and so does not reflect events in the 4+ 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.
