Buy FLEXIBLE Tickets from CHINNOR or RISBOROUGH:

We are delighted that GWR Steam Locomotive No. 6412 from our friends at the South Devon Railway will be providing steam power on all our steam hauled trains from now until the end of the 2021 season. The 87-year-old locomotive has been a regular and strong performer on our line and is much loved by all our Visitors and Volunteers. See the panorama of the Chiltern foothills unfold as the steam drifts gently past your window - you might spot some of our local wildlife too, and it is rather rare not to see Red Kites whirling overhead! For more information on what you can see en-route please take a look at our Journey Guide from Chinnor to Princes Risborough.

Our range of concessionary fares for children, seniors, local residents, Blue Lamp card holders etc., will continue to be available in Open-plan seating areas. An enhanced cleaning and sanitising regime will continue on trains and these similar measures proved successful and popular during the periods when the Railway continued to operate prior to most Covid-19 restrictions being lifted.

FLEXIBLE TICKETS ALLOW BREAK OF JOURNEY & MULTIPLE JOURNEYS:

You may choose to break your journey at Chinnor or Princes Risborough and travel back by a different train service on the same day, and/or you may choose to make a further trip of the line on the same day - but these seats are limited and cannot be guaranteed.
