Schools Steamings

Bookings for our special steamings this year were made by thirteen Schools representing a total of over 800 children. This is the maximum we can accept in two days with our present facilities. A full report will appear in the next edition of Quainton News.

We are already making plans for 1978 when we will have to operate for at least three, probably five, days to satisfy demand. We will need about 12 guides each day in addition to train crews and sales and refreshment staff. Please book the dates June 26th to 30th 1978 now and arrange to spend a day or two of your holiday helping us to live up to our status as an Educational Charity.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1977 and so does not reflect events in the 36+ 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.
