Tony Lyster - The Former First Inn 2013 (both)

This property was also known as the First Inn, and previously the Railway Arms. It was shown on the 1920's OS map as the Railway Arms. Whilst this is hardly a real railway property, this was the nearest house in Station Road, Quainton, when you walked away from the station. The roof gave way in October 2013 and is now believed to be due for demolition. Around 100 years ago Quainton Village boosted no less than 7 licensed premises, though most were merely front rooms where you could obtain a home brewed pint in the evening, today there is only one - the George and Dragon.

The Railway Arms / First Inn was different, it was frequented by the driver of the Brill Tramway engine on his arrival at Quainton Road. Presumably, the fireman stayed with the engine. The Railway Arms sold its final pint on 19th December 1957.
