Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Fri 27th - Sun 29th Mar 2020 Diesel Gala – Cancelled

We will be raising the roof with yet another diesel spectacular on the weekend.

With an expected four or more locomotives operating and also selected locos hauling a good couple of hundred ton special up our 1 in 68 inclines means that you’ll certainly get the full music of the selected locomotives. The service will be very intensive to allow you to sample all of the fine machines on our scenic and nicely graded route.

We will also be offering Cab rides on each service to enable you to really enjoy the atmosphere and get a driver's view of the line. Depending on crewing levels, there will be Brake van rides with our NSE Class 08 08825/97808 with our shark brake van running up Risborough South Siding 1 (rare track) between departures and arrivals at Princes Risborough.

We will have barrels of real ale on offer with some local cider on tap too! Exact ales and ciders to be announced nearer the time.
