Ale Beer & Steam train rides in the Bar-car:

Combined Day Rover Tickets and book-in-advance seats in the Ale & Beer Bar-car with your first drink included in the price! The perfect combination for travelling and imbibing together on a relaxing and convivial double trip of the line (over 2-hours duration). Your train will be hauled alternately by a vintage diesel and then a steam locomotive on Sunday 25 August or on Bank Holiday Monday 26 August.

Enjoy a selection of Cask Ales, Craft Beers & Local Beers whilst travelling in reserved seats in the Bar-car on your choice of train service departing Chinnor at either Midday (12.05) or Mid-afternoon (14.45). You can also travel on all other train services throughout the day in our unreserved seats, which could also be helpful if you wish to join at Princes Risborough (for Chiltern Railways services).

Our volunteer stewards will be delighted to welcome you onboard and serve your first Pint of Ale or Beer which is included in the price. For those who prefer to drink Wine then a 187 ml bottle of Red or White is available as an alternative, or for 'the driver' fruit juice or other non-alcoholic drinks will be available.

Then sit back, relax and hear the vintage diesel growl on the first round trip of the line and watch the steam lazily curl past your window on the second return trip, as the lovely views gradually open out to reveal the Vale of Aylesbury and Whiteleaf Cross in the distance. For further information please see our Journey Guide.


Two return trips of the line hauled alternately by both a vintage diesel and then a steam locomotive and your first Pint of Ale or Beer (or alternative Red or White Wine, or fruit juice) at an inclusive price: Adult £20, Concession £18, Resident £15, Accompanied Child (under 16 years travel only) £1.

Additional Cask Ales, Craft Beers & Local Beers at £4.50 per pint, will be available to purchase from the Bar Car on the trains - details of all Ales and Beers will be available shortly!
