Home » What's On in 2017



We would like to invite you and your friends and family to come along to Chinnor railway station between 10.00 and 15.00 hours on Saturday 3 June and again on Sunday 4 June 2017 to explore, have fun, and see what the Railway offers all our visitors and the local community.

Did you know that we are 100% volunteer run and there are no paid-staff at the Railway:

It's also an opportunity for many of our visitors to perhaps think about how they could get involved in some way or other and when you talk with our existing volunteers, you'll find there's something for almost everyone!

Learn about our restoration progress and hear about exciting future plans:

  • See behind the scenes - visit the trains, yard, signal box, and more.
  • Ride the heritage diesel railcar along part of the line for FREE and hear all the latest developments and news on the 'Risboro Story.
  • Learn about the Chinnor Restoration and Education Centre, including how we will aim to tell the story of Chinnor and its industrial past and our local railway heritage.
Our friendly volunteers will be delighted to show you behind the scenes and answer all your questions:

  • Meet our royal shunter Haversham and his companion the Lovely Linda!
  • See how we service and prepare Steam Locomotive No.6412.
  • Meet the drivers and firemen who will tell you about their unique experiences.
  • Visit the signal box and understand how safety is paramount on the line.
  • Chat with the team who maintains the carriages and wagons.
  • Hear how we maintain the track and lineside in an environmentally friendly way.
  • See how we operate our services and how we aim to delight our visitors.

Our updated site plan will be available here shortly - also the Tea Room and Gift Shop will be open throughout the day.
