 Steam Gala and Model Railway Exhibition


Spring Steam Gala

Our annual feast of railways of all sizes on takes place on Sunday 30th  and Bank Holiday Monday 1st May at Buckinghamshire Railway Centre. Whatever your interest in railways there is bound to be a great deal to discover at this event!

With up to seven locomotives in steam - including visiting loco - T9 4-4-0 30120 'Greyhound'. Also, brake van rides, vintage carriages, freight trains, 'Driver for a Tenner', and much more, there will be plenty to sample in the atmosphere of the steam age, with rides behind steam locomotives (including some vintage coaches), and the continuous movement of engines and rolling stock.

Set within a 25 acre site amongst rolling Buckinghamshire countryside, you can be assured of a fabulous day, full of things to do and see for all the family!

Also, come and view our new LNWR 2-2-2 tender loco no. 3020 'Cornwall', replacing Castle Class 4-6-0 No. 5080 Defiant. Soon to take its place I our visitor centre. LNWR 2-2-2 tender loco No. 3020 ‘Cornwall’ is coming to Quainton in April on loan from The National Railway Museum. Built in 1847, ‘Cornwall’ will be displayed alongside two LNWR liveried carriages and will take pride of place in our stunning ‘Rewley Road’ Visitor Centre. Rather appropriately, the building was also built by LNWR in the centre of Oxford, before being relocated to the Quainton site. ‘Cornwall’ will hopefully be with us for approximately two years. We are thrilled to be welcoming such a stunning locomotive to our collection, and it is anticipated that the change-over will take place sometime in April, in perfect timing for our Annual Spring Steam Gala.
