The Last Narrow-Gauge Railway Adventure

We are not content with carrying passengers over the current open section and we are hard at work on the project to extend the railway to Blackmoor, Wistlandpound and eventually back to Lynton, but why is it taking so long? CLICK HERE to find out.

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.
