Father's Day DAD FREE

Photography: Alexandra Jane

Every Dad TRAVELS FREE with any accompanied ticket holder on Father's Day, 17 June 2018.  Dad will probably appreciate the steam and diesel locomotive hauling his train and with the Red Kites often whirling overhead, it is surely going to be his perfect treat!

All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing steam past your window or the vintage diesel is growling its way along the line on the gentle 45-minute round trip from Chinnor to Thame Junction and return.

Our volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of tea, coffee and light refreshments, and they will even have Chinnor Railway Ale onboard (well, it surely is Dad's special day!).

Your travel tickets are valid all day long and you can travel on whichever train you choose - there are plenty of seats on every train.


Trains will depart Chinnor station at 11.00 (steam only), 12.15 (vintage diesel only), 13.30 (steam only), 15.00 (steam only) and 16.30 (steam only). Each round trip is EITHER steam OR vintage diesel hauled to and from Thame Junction ONLY - whilst our volunteers are busily constructing both a platform and run-around loop at Princes Risborough, and the return journey takes approximately 50 minutes in duration.
