QUAINTON EMAIL LETTER 21.6.17

A REQUEST WITH A DIFFERENCE

Vickie Bristow, our Assistant Curator, is looking for advice, help and guidance. No, not personally, but for the Museum! I will let her explain as follows:,

  1. The museum is in need of a second-hand DVD player. It is required for the new booking office display in the platform buildings on Platform 1. We need it to be able to be set to start playing automatically when set off by a movement sensor. Does anyone have one?

  2. The museum has a substantial photograph collection that is in need of cataloging. This would suit a retired person who wants an easy, but rewarding job. Full instruction will be given and no IT skills are needed!!
  3. Engineering is in need of a DMU vacuum brake handle. AKA "A Spoon". This is needed for the fitting of a vacuum brake to the new diesel in the up yard "Cromwell". Also any other vacuum brake system parts or expertise!! Does anyone have one?

If you can help, in any way, with any of the above please contact Vickie at museum@bucksrailcentre.org
