Day Rover Tickets & Fares for Diesel Only Days:

You can join our vintage diesel hauled trains at either Chinnor or Princes Risborough stations - for car parking and public transport please see the section on Arriving. Choose your seats, sit back, relax and hear the diesel engine growl as you enjoy the panorama alongside the Chiltern Hills with the lovely views opening out and the Vale of Aylesbury stretching into the distance. As the scenery gently unfolds past your window you may also spot some of our local wildlife and the ubiquitous Red Kites whirling overhead! For further information please see our Journey Guide.


Diesel Only Day tickets are issued as go-as-you-please Day Rovers and are valid on every train and all day long! Stay for the whole or half day - or come for just one return journey if you only prefer a taster - it's all the same price and you can also choose to break your journey at Chinnor or Princes Risborough for a stroll into the village or town.

Adult, Concession, Resident and Child tickets may be purchased at stations or online until 14.00 on the day of travel. If bought online the 'adult' tickets are generally £1 cheaper than buying at stations (note £2 agency fee per online transaction applies):

On the train: Residents please show proof of local address, or Card holders bring your card with you - thank you!

Other Concessionary Cards - we also accept HRA Privilege Cards, TOC/Network Rail Privilege Cards, Members Cards and Directors Passes. See your Card issuer for concession rates and details. Tickets are only available on the day of travel at station ticket offices.

Less-able Concessionary tickets - for visually impaired or those whose disability necessitates a carer - when one full price Adult Rover ticket is purchased at station ticket offices the less-able person together with one accompanying carer may travel together for the total cost of £16.00.

Buggies and strollers CANNOT be accommodated on the trains. They may be left on the platform at our stations, or if arriving by car you may prefer to leave them in your vehicle.

No seat reservations are required on any Standard Day - which means that you can choose to sit in any non-dining areas on every train - take a look through the carriages and choose those that you like - we aim to provide ample seats according to the time of day!
