Quainton railway station

Quainton railway station at Quainton in Buckinghamshire, England was the northern terminus of the Wooton (later Brill) Tramway.

Originally opened in 1899, the tramway was one of the first 'light railways' opened under new legislation brought in to support local lines.

Later subsumed onto the Metropolitan Railway's northern extensions, there were plans to extend the few short miles from Brill to Oxford.

The line to Brill was closed shortly after nationalisation of London Underground, however Quainton Station still remains as the Buckinghamshire Railway Heritage Centre.
