Jones increased scheduled passenger journeys from two to three each day in each direction.[64] With locomotives generally occupied with goods, many passenger services were drawn by horse.[64] While the increased passenger journeys boosted revenues, the Tramway no longer owned enough horses and had to hire them. By 1881 the passenger service was losing £11(about £800 as of 2010) a month,[13][65] although reduced use of locomotives lowered maintenance costs.[65] Although reliability had improved, services were still slow. Horse-drawn passenger services took 60–70 minutes to travel six miles between Quainton Road and Brill.[58] The locomotive-hauled mixed trains, with frequent stops to load and unload, were timetabled at 11⁄2 to 23⁄4 hours to make the same journey, slower than walking.[58]
Jones hoped to increase passenger revenue by promoting Brill as a spa. The chalybeate springs of Dorton Spa outside Brill were known for supposed healing powers,[66] and a resort had been built around the Spa in the 1830s,[67] featuring a modern pump house and eight baths, set in 12 acres (4.9 ha) of parkland.[68] Despite the redevelopment and the building of modern hotels in Brill, Dorton Spa was unfashionable and by the late 19th century was little used.[68] Jones and the Spa's owners hoped Queen Victoria would visit during her 1890 stay at Waddesdon Manor and thus boost Brill as a spa town. Although such a visit was arranged, Victoria changed her mind and visited the spa at Cheltenham instead.[69] The spa traffic never materialised.[69]
