Tony Lyster - Quainton's Wembley Shed

This sectional steel structure was purchased from London Transport in 1972 and re-erected during 1977 - 1979 with block work walls. It is used to house our vintage train and can be opened for viewing only by request and in advance, though it is unlit. We regret that access is not suitable for wheelchairs as it is across tracks and stone ballast.

Changes made since Purchase

The block walls were newly installed by QRS on re-erection in the 1970s. At the same time new concrete walkways were installed between each of the two tracks. Roller doors were also installed.
