About

In 1968 the London Railway Preservation Society chose Quainton Road to establish its Centre. From modest early beginnings on a few metres of weed grown track the volunteer members of the renamed Quainton Railway Society have established the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre as one of the leading steam museums in the country - covering nearly 30 acres the collection includes some 35 steam locomotives as well as examples of both diesel locomotives and multiple units. The large collection of carriages and wagons includes a 1901 coach used latterly in the Royal Train together with a specially converted vehicle from 1943 used as a mobile meeting room by Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower.

Wandering amongst the collection of vehicles in the care of the centre it is easy to slip back in time to the golden age of steam when life moved at a slower pace. We hope you enjoy your visit to Buckinghamshire Railway Centre where in the midst of delightful Buckinghamshire countryside you can be assured of an interesting and enjoyable visit.
