Buckinghamshire Railway Centre
Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is a working steam museum where you can step back in time as you stroll amongst the giants of the steam age displayed at its spacious 25 acre site.
The Centre boasts one of the largest private railway collections in the country with many steam locomotives from express passenger types to the humble shunting engine, as well as numerous interesting items of rolling stock.
These include a coach from the Royal Train of 1901 and another used by Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower for wartime planning meetings in 1944.
The impressive building that you enter when you first arrive is the original Oxford Station at Rewley Road, on the Bottley road out of Oxford. It was moved to Quainton in 1999, piece by piece, and opened to the public in 2001.
The building was erected in 1851, the same year and by the same builders that built the Great Exhibition Hall, known as the Crystal Palace, in Hyde Park. Pictures of both buildings show that they share some of the same features.
Come and be inspired by this Victorian masterpiece.
