Great day out by Chiltern Turbo

A special Chiltern Turbo railtour being organised by the Quainton Branch of the Royal British Legion on Sunday, June 10 will bring a rare opportunity to travel along the freight-only line between Aylesbury and Bicester Village via Calvert and Claydon Junction and visit the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre at Quainton Road HP22 4BY.

For those with much smaller gauges in mind, there will be a chance to ride on the miniature railway there as well as sample the steam trains.

A Chiltern Turbo train has been earmarked for the Quainton Royal British Legion Railtour on Sunday, June 10.

The Quainton Royal British Legion Railtour will leave Aylesbury at 10.10am, 1.10pm and 3.40pm, and passengers will be able to get on and off at Quainton Road and Bicester Village. The final train to Aylesbury will leave Quainton at 6.10pm, so there’ll be plenty of time to enjoy the day.

RBL standard bearers will be on parade at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre as part of the First World War Centenary Celebrations.

The day-long First World War Centenary activities at Quainton Road will include an Act or Remembrance, a display by the Royal British Legion Riders, a Parade of Standards and lots more. Railtour tickets can be bought on the day at £5 per adult and £2.50 per child, with free travel for under-fives.

Normal entrance fees to the railway museum and visitor centre will apply.
