Jim Stevens and Alan Vessey have provided the steam and electric services at Open Days and the VAMES track is a popular attraction to visitors. Track laying has extended the amount of line to over 400ft. and fencing has been erected for crowd control. Many VAMES members have done a tremendous amount of hard work preparing the approach road and turning area, and making ready for the signal box.

(Is distortion of track by the heat of the sun a problem? If so, how do you solve it?- JRF)

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1980 and so does not reflect events in the 30+ 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.
