We will be returning to Buckinghamshire Railway Centre over the weekend of June 3rd & 4th 2017, in conjunction with the Miniature Steam Traction Engine Rally, a brilliant fit with Steampunk! Following on from our September weekend at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, Quainton, near Aylesbury, which featured traders and live entertainment amongst the railway exhibits and artefacts, including LIVE steam engines and unlimited rides, we’re going to be back with Steampunk Traders to please visiting Steampunks and enthusiasts of steam power! Sadly we can’t use the Visitor Centre at night, so no evening show, instead we’ll go down the local pub!
The Visitor Centre is actually a bit special, being the last remaining fragment of the original Crystal Palace, left over when it was erected in Hyde Park in 1851 and used as a railway station in Oxford before coming to the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre. There’s a huge GWR locomotive “Defiant” in there along with some vintage carriages, what a brilliant backdrop for steampunk traders.
