Buckinghamshire Railway Centre

The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, is a 30 acre working Steam Museum, with one of the UK's largest collections of locomotives, rolling stock and railway memorabilia. A re-created country station in the heyday of steam travel, offers steam train rides on certain days.As well as the 1890's station , their is an impressive Visitor centre which was the former Oxford Rewley Road Station - now used as refreshment rooms, gift shop, a royal dining coach from 1901 and a coach used by Sir Winston Churchill and Dwight D, Eisenhower for secret strategy planning meetings.

Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is  operated by the Quainton Railway Society Ltd. at Quainton Road railway station, in the far depths of "Metro-land", about 5 miles (8 km) west of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. The site is divided into two halves which are joined by two foot-bridges, one of which provides wheelchair access. Each side has a demonstration line with various workshop buildings as well as museum buildings. Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is rail-connected because Quainton Road station is on the Network Rail freight-only line (formerly a mainline used jointly by the Great Central Railway and the Metropolitan Railway through the Metropolitan and Great Central Railways Joint Committee) which connects Aylesbury with the Bletchley to Oxford cross-country route at Claydon (LNE) Junction. This allows Chiltern Railways to operate occasional shuttle trains from Aylesbury to Quainton Road on Buckingham Railway Centre open days.
