The Cholsey & Wallingford  Railway

  The Bunk Line - Home of the Cholsey and Wallingford Railway Preservation Society 


Everyone you meet at the Cholsey & Wallingford Railway is a Volunteer - nobody receives a salary, we do it because we enjoy it - plus our aim is to help to educate future generations, and for them to experience and enjoy our heritage.

We have worked incredibly hard to ensure your future journey is COVID-19 safe - whilst also keeping your visit enjoyable! But it does mean that we will have to necessarily limit the number of people we welcome onto our services when they re-start.

Please do follow all Government rules and advice on travelling by public transport, and when you visit us we also ask you to take note of the following to get the most from your visit.

Before you travel:

You must pre-book your tickets and refreshments online before travelling.

Timetable: Our timetable will vary depending on the service we are operating

Cholsey:        11.15  12.45  14.15  15.45 (No return possible on the 15.45)
