Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway has announced that their preserved railway will once again be running steam trains from Thursday 15th April.
Thanks to changes in the UK Government’s advice regarding COVID-19, with the slow easing of full lockdown restrictions planned over the next few months, Thursday 15th of April is the first appropriate day the heritage railway can reopen.
Holding a Visit England ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark, the railway has implemented a number of measures, such as social distancing, to ensure visitors and volunteers are safe throughout their visit.
Four round trips will be run on Thursday 15th, Sunday 18th and Sunday 25th of April at the following times:
- 10.45 am
- 12.30 pm
- 2.30 pm
- 4.15 pm
Hauled by Great Western Railway steam locomotive 4575 Class No.5526, each return trip will last for roughly one hour.
When the engine ‘runs around’ it’s trains at Princes Risborough, passengers will get the opportunity to have a quick break on the platform. Facilties include:
- Car Parking – free for customers
- Small Gift Shop
- Pop-Up catering stall at Chinnor – serving drinks, snacks and refreshments
All tickets are to be booked prior to visiting, with compartments (costing £50 and seating between 2 and 6 people) and open-plan seating available at £12 per adult.
Compartments are likely to be booked quickly, with anyone interesting in visiting advised to book sooner rather than later.
