Quainton Stock List 1969 - 2nd Edition

Introduction to the Second Edition

The Relics listed in this Stocklist fall naturally into three sections as follows;

Section One, page 1
Lists all the Locomotives from the largest down to the humblest of the saddle tanks.

Section Two, page 6
Describes all the Carriages and Wagons.

Section Three, page 8
Details all the miscellaneous small items, Railcars etc.,

The Majority of the items listed are actually at Quainton Preservation Centre, but some of the larger ones are temporarily stored elsewhere until our rail connection with British Railways can be put in, therefore they may not be seen at Quainton for a little while.

Many of the vehicles listed are actually being restored at the moment, but it will naturally be some time before all are fully restored.

New items are under negotiation but it would be unfair to include these with the others yet as they may not arrive for some time. However, to make the Stocklist as complete as is possible, those which we expect in the near future are listed in a special 'Long Term' sheet at the rear (page 8).

Details of all new items and the current position of existing stock are given in the Bi-Monthly Newsletter which is distributed free to members of the Society.

Thanks are due to Mr Eric Tonks and the Industrial Railway Society for assistance with Historical details of the Locomotives.

At the moment all the items listed in this Stocklist are owned either by the London Railway Preservation Society or its members. The Quainton Railway Society has been formed by the LRPS to administer the Quainton Preservation Centre and all the Society owned items will be transferred to the Quainton Railway Society in due course.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1969 and so does not reflect events in the 48+ years since publication. The text is repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary.

This was a typed and duplicated list, the quality of which very much reflects the technology of the day. It is presented here for historical interest only.
