Summer Sun & Bank Hols KIDS 1

Throughout the summer school holidays our popular Kids-for-a-Quid scheme is once again in operation! From Sunday 23 July until 03 September 2017 inclusive and every day in-between that the railway runs, e.g. every Sunday and also each Thursday plus August Bank Holiday Monday - up to two children (3-15 yrs) go for just £1 each when accompanied by any fare-paying Adult (16-59 yrs) or Senior (60+ yrs).

See the foothills of the Chilterns in their summer glory: you might spot some of our local wildlife such as deer, and it is rather rare not to see the Red Kites whirling overhead.

Our volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of tea, coffee and light refreshments.
All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing out steam past your window on the gentle 45-50 minute round trip. Why not make several trips along the line - your travel tickets are valid all day long...

On alternate Sundays (23 July, 06 August, 20 August & 03 September) Chinnor Windmill is open from 10.00 - 15.00 and you are welcome to make a visit and look around the restored 'mill - the site is less than 5 mins by car from Chinnor railway station or is approximately 15 mins walk. For more information about visiting Chinnor Windmill and confirmation of the opening times please see here.

Please note on Sunday 23 July we will be operating trains from Chinnor to Thame Junction only and return. It will not be possible for our trains to traverse the short-distance into Princes Risborough siding and this is due to operational requirements - Network Rail has a tamping machine (used for track upgrades) on their part of the railway. Sorry for any disappointment caused on this occasion - advice received on Friday 21 July at 20.15 hours.
