On our Diesel Railcar Rambler up to two children (5-15 yrs) go for just £1 each when accompanied by any fare-paying Adult (16-59 yrs), Senior (60+ yrs), or Adult National Railcard holder.
A unique opportunity to see, listen and learn something about the history of the line and the local area it traverses and also see some of our Chilterns area flora and fauna. The trip in our vintage diesel railcar includes an informative but light-hearted commentary on the journey leg from Princes Risborough to Chinnor - which is given by one of our railway volunteers as we gently wend our way along the foothills of the Chilterns.
In addition to an overview of our local history and the line and some of the people who worked on it; when we see something of interest, then we'll simply ask our driver to stop so we can take a better look: that's not something you can normally do! What are those birds? What's growing in that field? Was that really the site of a Roman Villa?
See the foothills of the Chilterns in their 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.
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 local Church, and the guide also lists other places that may be of interest.
