Buy RESERVED SEAT Tickets from CHINNOR:

Please note all services on Sunday 14 August will be diesel hauled (no steam due to fire risk).

We are delighted the South Devon Railway will be providing GWR locomotive No.6412 as the power for our steam-hauled trains until the end of the 2022 season.

Your reserved seats on the steam-hauled train starting out from Chinnor can be made in:

To add to our steam service departures - additional trains will operate with classic diesel traction as shown below (some of our veteran diesel locomotives are 60 years or older). And because your tickets are also issued as All Day Rovers, you can travel in the unreserved seats on any of these additional services, and there will be ample seats on these trains too!

STARTING OUT AT CHINNOR - PRICES & YOUR CHOICE OF RESERVED SEATING ON STEAM SERVICES:

When you book your tickets below they will include seat reservations for one complete round trip at the departure time shown for the steam train from Chinnor to Princes Risborough and return - the round trip journey time is approximately 1-hour. See also below for information on 'Break of Journey and Multiple Journeys on Same Date' - your tickets are also available in unreserved accommodation for the remainder of the day.

COMPARTMENTS: for your comfort and peace of mind - you can purchase your own Compartment which is for your exclusive use for one complete round trip of the line. It is your own self-contained space for up to SIX persons - which means that once onboard you can close the internal door, then relax and enjoy the journey with family and friends. In addition, the price includes any drink or snack from the at-seat Trolley service for each person.

OPEN-PLAN SEATS: these carriages offer seating around a table for between one and up to four people for one complete round trip of the line. We will aim wherever possible NOT to reserve other families / individuals at the same table. If the reserved seats in the Open-plan carriage are SOLD OUT on your chosen service, then we always have at least one full coach of 64-SEATS AVAILABLE on every train available and you can BOOK FLEXIBLE TICKETS HERE OR buy them at our stations on the day!

*On selected School Holiday dates Children 3-15 years travel for just £1* with our Kids-for-a-Quid ticket offer (maximum 2 Children per Adult or Senior ticket holder) and under 3 years go Free.

Please note: Children under 3 years travel Free but no seat reservation is included. 

We are delighted to offer a range of even further Adult Fare Reductions to certain Concessionary Card Holders for travel in Open-plan seats and these include:

We welcome one Wheelchair User and a Carer / Companion on all steam trains on Standard Travel Days with a prior reservation. We also welcome well-behaved pet dogs, who can travel for free - but not on seats or in restaurant areas - please bring a blanket or similar for them to sit on - thank you. All ages must be included on your ticket to receive an allocated seat. Up to TWO additional under 3-yrs may travel free of charge. Buggies and Strollers cannot be accommodated on the train. They can be left on the platform at our stations, or if arriving by car you may prefer to leave them in your vehicle for added security.

 

BREAK OF JOURNEY & MULTIPLE JOURNEYS:

On the above dates you may choose to break your journey at Princes Risborough and travel back by a different train service on the same day, and / or you may also choose to make additional trips of the line on the same day.
