The former Quainton Road railway station is now a fascinating railway museum. There are lots of special events - you can take a ride on a steam train, or even meet Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends.

Another station building has been relocated from Oxford to make a visitor centre with a couple of indoor displays (VIP carriages etc.), a 'cinema coach', cafe and gift shop. There is also a secondhand bookshop on the site.

Admission (Summer 2008) is £7 for adults on a steam day (every Sunday and Wednesdays during summer) and £9 for special events. It is open on other days for static viewing (£5).

Address: Quainton, nr Aylesbury
Directions: Off the A413 Aylesbury-Bicester road.
