Mothering Sunday MUM FREE

Mum travels FREE with any accompanied fare-paying visitor on Mothering Sunday 11 March 2018, plus Mum also receives a small posy of flowers with the compliments of our volunteers.

A through the train catering trolley will offer an at-seat service of paid-for teas, coffees, light refreshments, snacks, and even Prosecco - served in a flute for Mum if you wish (well, it is her special day).

All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing steam past your window and the vintage diesel is growling its way along the line on the gentle 50-minute round trip. With lovely views gradually opening out to Whiteleaf Cross in the distance, plus the Red Kites often whirling overhead, it is surely going to be the perfect Mothering Sunday treat.

P.S. See also our delicious cream teas served in the Afternoon Tea Car on the 16.30 departure from Chinnor.


Trains depart Chinnor station at 11.00, 12.15, 13.30, 15.00 and 16.30.
Each round trip is both steam and vintage diesel hauled - 'top and tailed' to Thame Junction - Network Rail advise (30.01.2018) that we will not be able to take our train over their line and into our long siding at Princes Risborough due to engineering works, but the return journey will still take approximately 50 minutes in duration.
