Standard Travel

Below you will find our Standard Timetables and Fares (including Price Reductions to suit most wallets and purses).

Take a journey back in time with steam and heritage diesel trains on The Icknield Line as you gently travel along the foot of the Chiltern Hills between Princes Risborough and Chinnor. Sit back in comfortable seats and relax with our all-day unlimited Rover Tickets. Enjoy an at-seat service of reasonably priced drinks and light refreshments from the 10.45 departure onwards. 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 - you might spot some of our local wildlife too and it is rather rare not to see the Red Kites whirling overhead. Take a look at our Journey Guide for more information.

Make a day of it in the Chilterns

If you are looking for something more to do on your visit see our page on Princes Risborough, or the Stroll Around Chinnor Village Guide which includes links to the Wee Bookshop and The Village Centre for food and drink, various Bar/Restaurant meals in local pubs, or 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.

If you are visiting the Chilterns area by car - then we also have a number of local attractions within 15-minutes or less drive time, or slightly further afield please take a look at Visit Buckinghamshire or Experience Oxfordshire for a host of other ideas for your perfect day out!

Also, why not make several trips along the line - as your Rover Tickets are valid all day long.
