Mince Pie Specials KIDS 1

Our steam locomotive No 5526 will be hauling our trains on New Year's Day 01 January 2020.

Plenty of seats available - you can purchase your tickets on the day at both Chinnor and Princes Risborough stations. Then sit back in your comfortable seat and watch the steam drift lazily past your window, as the winter landscape unfolds during the journey.

Our volunteers will offer you a complimentary hot drink (or alternative juice for younger children) and Mince Pie or biscuits, which will all be served at your seat during the journey from Chinnor to Princes Risborough.

We have various fare offers available - including children under 5 years travel FREE and children 5-15 years go for just £1! If you are a local resident (OX39 or HP27) you and your accompanied family and friends can travel for £6 (Adult half-price). Please see travel prices below.
