Volunteers operating a narrow-gauge railway in Bedfordshire were amazed to find a Hollywood super star on one of their trains yesterday.

The actor John Travolta came for a ride with his young son Ben on the Leighton Buzzard Railway.

Following the 70-minute round trip, the star said how much they had enjoyed the experience and would try to come again in the future.
