L&B Trust Purchases "Ivy Cottage".

Mar
03

We are sure all will be delighted to hear that the L&BR Trust has not only sold the property Fairview (naturally retaining the trackbed) to one of our supporters, but also recently purchased "Ivy Cottage" - just down the road from Fairview.

The main benefit of this purchase is that at the back of Ivy Cottage there is a significant section of the Parracombe Halt site and trackbed. It is intended that this will also be separated from the main property before that is sold on.

On Thursday the volunteers made a start on clearing the site.

Heljan Manning Wardles - all reserved

Feb
23

We are no longer taking reservations as pre-orders have now reached the number of models we are likely to receive from PECO

These long-awaited Heljan models are expected to be in stock by the end of March. Once they are delivered, we will make contact with those customers who have made reservations.

It was fortunate that the L&B was able to secure a small batch of each of the three models as the first batch (coming from China) is already sold-out via advance orders.
