Quainton News Archive - Quainton News No. 63 - Summer 1987


The Editorial in Quainton News No. 62 spoke of co-operation bringing results. That theme also applies throughout this issue.

The highly successful British Coal Steam Heritage Award Ceremony was only made possible by the co-operation of British Coal, the Transport Trust, the ARPS, our marketing agents Caxton Advertising and the tireless band of Quainton regulars who stretched a day to 25 hours in order to make the occasion unforgettable.

On the opposite page is a small photo feature on the Ladies Day at the North Norfolk Railway. Once again whole-hearted co-operation was much to the fore, as girls from the Great Central, Kent & East Sussex and North Norfolk Railways, plus our own representative, helped to turn in record receipts for the hosts - and had great fun doing it!

Finally, Richard Hardy's second article on the Met and GC concentrates on the teamwork necessary to make the trains run to time and keep the customers happy.

Railways have always been about people working together, as much as engines and carriages, so it should come as no surprise to read about the success which such co-operation can bring. If we all keep this in mind, a sound, prosperous and happy future will come to our Centre that much easier.

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.
