Diesel Railcar Saturday 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 diesel railcar ONLY will be in operation (no locomotive hauled services). If you are aiming to travel by steam see Sunday 19 August please.

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.
