On 10th November a meeting is planned for members and this will be held at the Quainton Memorial Hall at 5 p.m. An illustrated talk will be given by Mr. Catchpole of the Ffestiniog Railway Society. His subject will be the Longmoor Military Railway, 1902 to 1972. Longmoor was the home of our Ivatt 2-6-2T, 41298, from August 1967 to December 1970 and the picture on this page shows the engine in the shed yard in June 1968 on one of its rare appearances. No prizes for guessing the identity of the chap on the ladder.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1974 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.
