Carriage and Wagon Department Notes

Duncan Battersby congratulates the small band of regulars for their work on the stock over the past year, but feels very critical of all those members who do not support their efforts and never appear at Quainton. To encourage these stay-at-homes, he points out that nearly all the work is carried out under cover on every Sunday and some Saturdays - and hot meals are available (including breakfast!) most of the year. One of the extras for a C&W volunteer is an occasional excursion to a BR yard, a scrapyard or one of the other preservation sites for coach spares. Duncan wants you to take this request seriously and to make 1987 a year of progress. Contact him at Quainton any Sunday. The LNWR mainline corridor coach, No. 2997, left Quainton on 2nd September for Carnforth, where it is to be restored and maybe used on a second Royal Scotsman train.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1987 and so does not reflect events in the 27+ 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.
