J R Fairman - Quainton, 8th June 1972; 5216
Just a reminder that BR traffic passes through our station. The train pictured is the Aylesbury to Northampton
freight in the early morning.
1 - 5216 was based at Cricklewood in the 1970s, eventually being scrapped at British Rail Derby Works in February 1983.
The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1973 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.
