Train to Aylesbury

Postby hillsy » Wed Oct 21, 2009 11:10 am

Is anyone actually getting the train to Aylesbury?

Breakfast at The Vale - Met to Harrow and then Chiltern all the way.

I'll confess, I can't stand being on a coach!

I hate coaches too. Only use them when there is no other means of travelling to a game.

I might even sell my ticket and drive.

I'm afraid thats pretty duff gen.

There are now only direct trains from London to Aylesbury via High Wycombe during the rush hour. Plus none of these stop at any of the Ruislips.

Plus it would seem that most trains that call at the Ruislips on a Saturday, terminate at Wycombe, which means a change to Princess Risborough, and then another change for Aylesbury.

Far better off going to Harrow on the Hill I'd say.

Here's some more bits for the jigsaw to help us find our way to this most obscure footballing outpost...

Met line trains depart every 10 mins from Ruislip to Harrow at 08 ,18, 28,38, 48 and 58 past each hour.
Takes 12 minutes to get there ( you do the maths).

Chiltern trains to Aylesbury station go at 39 mins past the hour and take 50 minutes.

Chiltern direct to Aylesbury Vale station go at 09 mins past and take 55 minutes.

Aylesbury day return is £11.80 , to Aylesbury Vale £12.80.

Good luck ladies and gentlemen. :geek:

Are you sure there are problems on the Met line this weekend?

Not according to this

I think you're right. Look's like it's aclear run. Maybe some works got cancelled.
What I can say for certain is that there are trains for Aylesbury leaving Harrow at 09 AND 39 past the hour all day.
If I hear any different ( I am based at HArrow Hill Station) will post on here.

yep you were right peter the metropolitan line is working fine all weekend just the jubilee line the major one closed all weekend....anybody with oystercard use this between harrow and amersham and at amersham buy return to aylesbury this will save you a little on the fares being a bit cheaper than full ticket return from harrow.
