Run-round loop and heritage platform for Risborough

BUILDING work has started on a new heritage railway platform and run-round loop at Princes Risborough.

The station is on the site of the former Watlington and Chinnor branch platforms and will be the new eastern terminus of the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway (C&PRR), giving it a direct interchange with Chiltern Railways and the national network for the first time.

The work has been possible thanks to a £75,000 Heritage and Community Rail Tourism Grant.

The first ‘preview’ trains ran in August 2016, and the C&PRR plans to run more trains to Princes Risborough in 2017. Photo: Phil Marsh
