Vintage Diesel - GALA

From Friday 05 April until Sunday 07 April 2019, we will be raising the roof with another diesel spectacular!

With five or more locomotives operating and hauling a good couple of hundred tons up our 1 in 68 inclines and with a 'loadex' as the finale - you’ll certainly get the full music of the selected locomotives. We will also be offering cab rides and more information will follow.

Jamie our event organiser says updates from him will appear on our Facebook page from time to time and meanwhile this website entry is made available for the purposes of securing diary dates etc.

Subject to availability, the starting line-up includes our own locomotives, viz:

We cannot have a diesel gala without a few fine beers - can we? The beers will be Loose Cannon Brewery Hop Back Mountain 4.2% and Abingdon Bridge 4.1%. There will also be some cider on offer too along with our bottled ales. Delicious!

Please note: there will be no steam locomotive running and only vintage diesels will operate over this weekend - therefore there will be no steam heating in our carriages, but should the weather be stacked against us... our Cambrian Café will be serving plenty of hot coffee and tea, plus hot bacon and sausage baps, all at our usual moderate catering prices!

If you are looking for something more to do whilst in Chinnor then see our guide 'Stroll Around Chinnor Village' which includes links to the Wee Bookshop and The Village Centre for food and drink, ditto Bar/Restaurant meals in local pubs, or say visit the Windmill (generally open first and third Sunday in the month) or the local Church, and the guide also lists other places that may be of interest.


TIMETABLE:

Please note there is a small possibility that the Saturday Timetable (6 April) may be altered slightly to accommodate the GBRf 66 arriving, and please visit this page nearer the time or see our Facebook page

TRAINS WILL CALL TO PICK UP AND SET DOWN AT PRINCES RISBOROUGH PLATFORM 4 AS SHOWN BELOW.
