QUAINTON EMAIL LETTER 10.7.2017

MEMBERS DAY - RSVP deadline extended!!

Members Day - Saturday 15th July 2-5pm - RSVP extended!

We are sorry that delivery of the latest Quainton News was delayed as it meant that the deadline of June 30th for Members to RSVP had passed by the time you got your invitations! So, the deadline has been extended to this Wednesday 12th July. If you could let Louisa know by end of play on Wednesday 12th July if you would like to come, that would be great! Over 70 people are already booked to come so you wont be on your own!

This presents a chance to get together with other members for an informal gathering of members without an agenda! Free buffet for members, £5 for friends/family (kids free). Please arrive at 2pm for a pleasant afternoon - sunny weather has been ordered...

We look forward to meeting you on the day!

Please RSVP to Louisa on 01296 655 720 or to marketing@bucksrailcentre.org if you are coming (which we hope you are)

FORMER IVATT TRUST locomotives
A number of my readers have pointed out to me recently that the third, and last, of the 3 locomotives that the former Ivatt Trust had at Quainton for many years, and that they passed to the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, has now been steamed publicly. Whilst their departure from Quainton has left a lasting "bad taste" feeling among many at Quainton it is good that all 3 are now restored and operational and that the two tank engines will be seen running together on the Island next year.
