BEWARE

LYNTON & BARNSTAPLE RAILWAY
ENTHUSIASTS DISEASE
HIGHLY INFECTIOUS TO MALES OF ALL AGES

THE SYMPTOMS: The sufferer becomes confused and bewildered when not near the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. Will be observed wandering around with blank expression, muttering strange words, such as Manning Wardle and Baldwin. Rapid rise in temperature at sight of a narrow gauge railway. Behaviour then becomes erratic: much rushing about and waving of arms. Foaming at the mouth is not unusual. Is sometimes violent to non-believers, especially to those with an interest in the Great Western Railway. The patient spends much time and money at book and magazine shops. Seems not to notice the presence of "Normal" people.

THIS CONDITION IS NOT FATAL

THE TREATMENT: The patient must be kept well supplied with items of L&B interest. Should be encouraged to visit North Devon, where he can meet other victims of the illness and exchange ideas with them. Friends and relations can aid recovery with free transport, free beer and membership of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust. In case of emergency contact Woody Bay Station.
