...this might be for you. I am giving a couple of talks for the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway this summer. The ticket price includes a cream tea, served on the 16:00 departure from Chinnor Station, a round trip to Princes Risborough and back, followed by a talk, the whole thing finishing around 18:15.

The CPPR is a heritage railway entirely run by unpaid volunteers. Full information and tickets are available from the CPRR website.

They do sound like they would interesting, particularly as I am a fan of both Holmes and Dickens (and Eliot, Hardy, et. al.)

Compared to PaulR I'm in even in the neighborhood. Still, there is the matter of a small pond in the way. :D

Hope you have every success Sunjester.

I can highly recommend these talks having heard both presented online during lockdown.

I am also reliably informed that the cream tea is far above standard British rail fare.
