New York Subway Car: 
Click here to read about our intriguing New York Subway Car which is the only one in the world that isn't in America. We have just moved it from one part of the site to another... find out how and why! 

Road Closures:
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 turn right into our car park. Just to confuse everyone, sometimes the road is re-opened for the weekend!

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
