The Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway is located in the village of Chinnor in rural Oxfordshire.

We are a standard gauge railway operating both steam and diesel hauled train services from our station at Chinnor in Oxfordshire. It operates part of the old Great Western Railway branch line which ran between Princes Risborough (Buckinghamshire) and Watlington (Oxfordshire).

The railway opens for passenger services in March until Hallowe’en with Christmas Specials operating in December. The line currently runs over a 3 ½ mile stretch along the foot of the Chiltern Hills running parallel to the Icknield Way, passing through attractive countryside with some outstanding views across the Vale of Whiteleaf. Our aim is to re-open as much of the branch as possible. We have built a replica of the original Station at Chinnor and are working to extend the line into Princes Risborough with connection to the Network Rail station.

Our services operate out of Chinnor station, principally at weekends, and run to Thame Junction, a round trip of nearly seven miles. We operate a number of special events and attractions throughout the season in addition to our standard timetabled services.
