Steam & Ploughman's Lunch

Sit back, relax and watch the steam lazily curl past your Luncheon Car window, as the lovely views gradually open out to reveal the Vale of Aylesbury and Whiteleaf Cross in the distance.

Ploughman's Lunches are served in the Luncheon Car on the 13.30 steam hauled service on 15 October 2017. At a table for 2 Adults (or 2 Adults + 2 Children), our volunteer staff will serve you a traditional and freshly prepared, rural Cheddar and Ham Ploughmans Lunch, together with your choice of tea / coffee, or soft drink. Local Chinnor Railway Ales can also be served at an additional charge.


Available only on the 13.30 departure from Chinnor.


When you book online the combined cost includes your travel, seat reservations and Ploughman's Lunch - the combined ticket is also slightly cheaper for full fare paying Adults than buying each item separately on the dates shown.

Adult or Senior travel + Ploughman's Lunch (16+ yrs)                                  £19.00

Accompanied Child travel + Ploughman's Lunch (3-15 yrs)                            £10.50

N.B. When you make up a party of 8 or more people and book in advance we may be able to offer you further reduced price group travel rates - click here to see how to obtain them.

Dogs - sorry only Assistance Dogs are allowed in the Luncheon Car.
