QUAINTON EMAIL LETTER 20.10.15
I have received the following for publication:
"Chair Person - Update Saturday 17/10/15
Following the resignation of our Chairman Peter Mitchell. At today's meeting of the Executive Committee, it was agreed that Rev David Aplin would be Acting Chairperson until the AGM in April next (16/04/16). This is in addition to his duties as Hon Treasurer to the Society.
We are looking for members to come and help decorate the Centre for Christmas. This will happen on Wednesdays and Thursdays in November once the last steaming is over and the Centre is in shut-down before re-opening for the Santa Season. There is a wonderful atmosphere on these decorating days - come and join in!

2015 Christmas leaflets
These are now ready for distribution and may be collected, as usual, from the Reception Desk in Rewley Road Visitor Centre.
LNER Coach 3188
This bogie coach has now left the Down Yard, totally wrapped in clear and black shrinkwrap (except the wheels), on its way to Darlington and a new life with the A1 Trust. This coach arrived many years ago but was later deemed as surplus to our needs. Following an AGM vote it was sold to a private owner who kept it at Quainton. Now it has a new owner and home "Up north". It will be interesting to see what happens to it next.
