Latest Arrival at Woody Bay

Just arrived this Saturday (12th April 2014) at Woody Bay Station is Bagnall loco CHARLES WYTOCK.

Purchased privately only last week by an L&B Member, the loco has not run since its rebuilding and the boiler has yet to be hydraulically tested as well as several other inspections carried out. Consequently the loco is not currently operational.

It is not the intention that this loco will become a regular part of the L&B's operations, but all being well, the L&BR will have access to a potentially useful loco as required at minimal cost.
