News in Brief

Lord Wenlock, an 0-6-0DM, formerly BR Class 04, D2298, has been purchased from the Derwent Valley Railway by Mike Goodwin and approved for store at Quainton. It arrived in the down yard on 22nd October.

Bob Smith and his lads have made a tidy PW yard at the Aylesbury end of the up yard past the VAMES site and the PW trollies are now berthed there.

Either Mike Rolley's or the Society's Wickham rail cars will be running at Easter in the up yard.

Work continues on the Gresley BSK, wiring and seat upholstery being the jobs to complete, hopefully for next Easter.

The concrete foundations for the ex-Hartington signal box have been cast at the approved site in the down yard, opposite to the present temporary position of the box. An article and pictures will appear in the next 'News'.

The additional refreshment coach, KDM 395344, has been in use, after being shunted up to W64, our catering vehicle. The accommodation was first used at the Bank Holiday weekend.

The LNWR full brake has continued in use on the 'passenger service', because the GNR third brake, although turned, needs a considerable amount of work before it can be used as a brake vehicle. The LNWR will have attention itself this Winter and be used for one or two seasons more.

The station gardens had a superb show of dahlias and petunias again this year and the colourful display is appreciated by many visitors.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1982 and so does not reflect events in the 32+ 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.
