Sunday for Steam & Vintage Diesel KIDS 3

It could be a good time to visit the Railway on 29 Sept and 13 Oct 2019 as the trains are generally lightly loaded and there are plenty of seats available, so that you can spread out and enjoy the journey.

See the foothills of the Chilterns change to autumn tints and you might spot some of our local wildlife too - it is rather rare not to see the Red Kites whirling overhead.

All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing out steam past your window or the vintage diesel is growling its way along the line. From 11.00 onwards our volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of tea, coffee and light refreshments.

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.

Also, why not make several trips as your travel tickets are valid all day long, of course!
