P Risboro Plat4 DIESEL KIDS 1

Throughout the summer school holidays our popular Kids-for-a-Quid scheme is once again in operation! Until 2 September 2018 inclusive and every day in-between that the railway runs - 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.

On Saturday 18 August our trains will be top and tailed by our two visiting vintage diesel locomotives: 20059 and 37227. If you are aiming to travel by steam see Sunday 19 August please.

Whilst your vintage diesel is growling its way along the line o
ur volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of tea, coffee and light refreshments. 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.
