Two pillars of the Chinnor Railway, who have been with the line since it opened 20 years ago, have retired.

Heavy road haulage contractor John Antell, who has moved steam locomotives to and from the heritage line over the years, was presented with life membership of the railway and an oil painting to mark his retirement.

The presentation came on the same day that steam locomotive no.1369 was taken away to Devon after numerous visits to the Chinnor line.
