The Cholsey and Wallingford Railway

The Cholsey and Wallingford Railway is a preserved former Great Western Railway branchline that links the national railway network at Cholsey, with the historic market town of Wallingford, Oxfordshire. Trains run on selected weekends and bank holidays throughout the year and, where available, are steam hauled.

Known locally as "The Bunk", passenger services ceased in 1959. Having secured the line in 1981, the CWR Preservation Society now aims to re-create a GWR Station, similar to the original, at its site in Hithercroft Road.

Opening Times and Events for 2003:

Tickets may be purchased at either station. At Wallingford, there is a museum and souvenir shop with second-hand books. Light refreshments are available in our Cambrian Railways coach, with ajoining picnic area. Parking is available at both stations.
