Railmotor Mortons Enthusiasts' Club

On 29 June 1957 the last scheduled BR passenger trains ran between Princes Risborough & Chinnor (and Watlington). Sixty years to the exact date we are pleased to announce we will be operating trains once again on the truncated branch with an afternoon public train service on 29 June 2017

Thanks to our fantastic friends at Didcot Railway Centre we are delighted to say that the service will be provided by the historic Edwardian period Steam Railmotor No. 93 and Trailer, and it will also be working services on the following three weekends see here.  The running of these trains is subject to Network Rail gauging approval, which we hope to have shortly.

Historically, in 1906 a Steam Railmotor began plying for custom along the branch - picking up and setting down passengers at Chinnor and the new halts along the line such as Bledlow Bridge. In the same year (1906) the platform we are busily restoring at Princes Risborough (to provide an interchange facility at a date to be announced), was also introduced.


DEPARTURE TIMES:


The Steam Railmotor and Trailer trains will depart Chinnor station on 29 June at 12.30, 13.50, 14.55 and 16.00. Subject to Network Rail agreement on the day we will aim to run most services into our leased siding at Princes Risborough station (but note there is no platform available to join or alight at this location). Each round trip takes approximately 55 - 65 minutes in duration.
