Road Closures:

Please be aware of road closures when travelling to us. Sometimes the closed roads are re-opened for the weekend. Station Road is closed from the A41 into Quainton, so if you are coming along the A41 from Bicester, contine into Waddesdon village centre and take the left-hand turn immediately after the pedestrian crossing. The sign states 'access only', but the road is open to reach us. Turn right at the cross roads, over the railway bridge and right into our car park.

If you are coming through Quainton village, please note that you CAN access The Railway via Station Road, the road is closed AFTER us.

Please ring us if you have any problems on 01296 655720

Thank you to those who held onto their tickets from postponed 2020 events. To say thank you, we have given everyone complimentary tickets for a standard Steaming Day in 2021.

We have hopefully emailed everyone about this, but if you haven't, please email us on office@bucksrailcentre.org and we will sort this for you. Please note, we are unable to upgrade tickets to Day Out With Thomas or Christmas events.

NB: In normal circumstances, the Centre has a no-refund policy and looks to offer alternative dates in relation to all cancellations regardless of the reason and this remains in operation at this time.
