 The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway in North Devon (UK)

Hello,

Sorry for not being able to speak Austrian/German. :(

I thought I would post these film links shot in 1935 of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway which was situated in a picturesque part of North Devon in the UK.

It was a narrow gauge line opened in 1898 and closed in 1935. It became part of the Southern Railway in 1923 and was run in the fashion of a standard gauge line being fully signalled.

Sadly, the railway was not economic and was closed in 1935. There were five locomotives. Four built by Manning Wardle and a Baldwin from the USA. They were all named after local rivers. All were cut up except one of the Manning-Wardle's which was sent to Brazil.

These videos give a good idea of the line in it's last few months:

Part of the line is being preserved by a group:

The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways have built a replica of one of the Manning-Wardle engines called 'Lyd'. Here she is at Woody Bay:

PECO have introduced a selection of coaches and wagons for the railway and Heljan are planning to release a 2-6-2 Manning Wardle also in 009 Scale in 2014.

Cheers,

Mark

Welcome

Hi Mark, thank you for posting these links and welcome to the forum. Speaking German is not necessary unless you post interesting facts in English. British narrow-gauge has become more interesting not only since "Eisenbahn-Romantik" has shown films over the Welsh-Narrow-Gauge system. Hope you forgive my English - writing experience has "faded" over the years.
Regards Rainer

Hi Rainer,

Thanks for that. Your English is good I come from an age where teaching of languages wasn't taken seriously in the 1980's. Saying that I was in North Wales a few weeks ago and the land lady of a pub said she did not learn English until she was 13-her first language being Welsh.

The Welsh narrow gauge lines have a real charm and if the PECO/Heljan 009 RTR venture pays off we may see some F&WHR locos and stock being produced.

The Lynton & Barnstaple line has a real following in the UK and I'd expect to see a few layouts appear when the Heljan Manning Wardle is out.

Thanks once again.

Mark
