THE AWARD WINNING L&B!

Heritage Railway Association Logo

HRA ANNUAL AWARD (SMALL GROUPS) made to a HRA member organisation for an outstanding achievement in railway preservation.

This year's winner:

THE LYNTON & BARNSTAPLE RAILWAY TRUST

"In recognition of it taking a major step forward in its mission to recreate a piece of North Devon transport heritage in its original form with the restoration of three original carriages. This was enhanced by the visit of a Lynton and Barnstaple replica Manning Wardle locomotive in Southern Railway green."

”Perchance the L&B is now wide awake!”


ALL ABOARD - HELP US TO MAKE THE RAILWAY LONGER

For less than the price of a cuppa you can help us make this happen

Of course the L&B Trust is not content with carrying passengers over the section currently open and is hard at work on a project to extend the railway to Blackmoor, Wistlandpound and eventually back to Lynton.

Did you know that having a heritage railway nearby significantly boosts the local economy?

The World awaits the Possible Dream

 More than 78 years after the railway's closure, you can once more board a train of original L&B coaches at England's highest narrow-gauge railway station - the delightfully named Woody Bay Station - 1,000 feet up on wild Exmoor.
 
Run almost entirely by volunteers, we are a "non-profit" organisation owned by its Members with the mission to fully restore as much as we can of the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway.
