Mothering Sunday MUM FREE

Every Mum travels FREE with any accompanied ticket holder on Mothering Sunday 26 March 2017, and she also receives a small posy of flowers with the compliments of the Railway's volunteers.

All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing steam past your window or the vintage diesel is growling its way along the line on the gentle 50 - 55 minute round trip. Our volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of tea, coffee and light refreshments, and even Prosecco served in a glass flute for Mum (well, it surely is her special day!).

With lovely views gradually opening out to Whiteleaf Cross in the distance and the Red Kites often whirling overhead, it is surely going to be the perfect Mothering Sunday treat.

Your travel tickets are valid all day long and you can travel on whichever train you choose - there are plenty of seats on every train and the choice of where to sit is entirely yours! 

There is a large free car park (with CCTV), tea room and souvenir shop at Chinnor station.

N.B. All seats for delicious cream teas in the Afternoon Tea Car on the 13.30, 15.00 and 16.30 departures from Chinnor are now fully booked. Sorry, but is always popular!

 

DEPARTURE TIMES:

 

Trains depart Chinnor station at 11.00 (steam and vintage diesel), 12.15 (steam and vintage diesel only), 13.30 (steam and vintage diesel), 15.00 (steam and vintage diesel) and 16.30 (steam and vintage diesel).
