Sunday for Steam & Vintage Diesel

Steam locomotive No.6412 will be operating four out of five train services on Sundays 7 & 14 May 2017 - please see below for departure times.

It could be a good time to visit the railway - as the trains are generally more lightly loaded before the summer holidays begin and there are plenty of seats available to spread out and enjoy the journey. See the foothills of the Chilterns spring to life as the landscape is now verdant and green: you might spot some of our local wildlife such as deer, and it is rather rare not to see the Red Kites whirling overhead.

All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing out steam past your window or the vintage diesel is growling its way along the line on the gentle 8-mile round-trip.

Our volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of reasonably priced tea, coffee and light refreshments. We’re also serving Cream Teas in the Afternoon Tea Cars on 7 May and we still have some seats available on the 16.30 departure.

Your travel tickets are valid all day long and you can travel on whichever train you choose - 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.



DEPARTURE TIMES:

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

Subject to Network Rail agreement on the day we will aim to run most services into Princes Risborough (but note there is no platform available to join or alight at this location). Each round trip takes up to 55 minutes in duration.
