News in Brief

Juno, the stalwart of so many open days in the west yard was moved over to the up side by Pointer's transport on 8th June after the low loader had delivered 46447 from Barry. All the Ivatt Trust locomotives were thereby brought together at one site and have since been joined by the ex Midland goods van, Army 47271, which the Trust are to use for stores.

A very interesting wagon is expected soon from Beckton Gasworks. It is of timber construction and is the last survivor of a standard design built by the Gas Light & Coke Company at their own wagon works for use in the gas works. It has been donated to the society by Mr J Horne and by the Editor.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1972 and so does not reflect events in the 40+ 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.
