See Churchill's carriage at Buckinghamshire Railway Centre

Quainton, Buckinghamshire

The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is a working steam museum with one of the UK’s largest collections of locomotives, rolling stock and railway memorabilia.

For the enthusiasts amongst us, the museum is home to carriages from the later 1800s such as the Metropolitan Railway tank from 1898, and a unique London Chatham and Dover Railway Coach from 1880.

For children, the museum holds days out with Thomas where you can take a ride behind Thomas the Tank Engine under the watchful eye of the Fat Controller. Days also include a magic show, Punch and Judy and free giveaways.

As well as the collection, there is also a visitor centre with a café, gift shop, a 1901 Royal Dining Coach and a coach used by Winston Churchill and Dwight D. Eisenhower for secret war strategy meetings.
