5786 Chinnor 24 April 2011

57xx Class 0-6-0PT 5786 arrives back at Chinnor station on 24 April 2011 with the returning 13:15 service. Chinnor is the only station on the line open to the public, with the far end of the route (Thame Junction) being a little short of the line's ultimate destination - Princes Risborough. The station building here is an exact replica of the original, which had unfortunately been demolished before the preservation society took over in 1990. Luckily the identical station building at Watlington (the original terminus of the line) survives, and although in a derelict state, provided much useful information for the reconstruction of Chinnor.
