3-CEP 1198 at Chinnor

Type: Preserved Railway (Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway)
Opened: 1872 (Closed 1957)
Re-Opened: 1994
Platforms: 1

The station was opened by the Watlington & Princes Risborough Railway in 1872, later becoming part of the Great Western Railway. The line was closed to passenger traffic in 1957, however it remained open for freight traffic until 1989 when it was finally closed [1]. The line was reopened by the CPRR in 1991.

The original station was demolished after the cessation of passenger traffic. The current station dates from 1994 and was a rebuild of the original building with a main difference being the layout of the chimneys [2]. The station is the headquarters of the railway and host to its storage sidings and yard.

The current Chinnor platform is the opposite side of the line to the original station so passengers need to cross the track, this allows for interesting views of trains at the station. Trains from Chinnor now run through to a platform at Princes Risborough.
