Quainton Road resounded to the sound of a pair of Growlers as a train with a Type 37 at each end brought in around 600 passengers for a brief visit to the BRC. The visit was organised by Pathfinder Railtours, who specialise in branch line sorties. It created a scene that might have been in the 60s but for the cessation of scheduled passenger services on the line on 4th March 1963.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 2007 and so does not reflect events in the 7+ 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.
