OUR NEXT OBJECTIVE!

May
17

With the uncertainty regarding the granting of planning permission by Exmoor National Park behind us, now is the time to make a share purchase.

The share offer is only open until July and cannot be extended further - so if you intend to join us, please leave it no longer.


Alternatively, if you have thought about supporting the acquisition of the Old Station House Inn but do not wish to buy shares, why not make a donation - all support is appreciated.

HELP - General Manager's Equipment Fund

A new hole in the ground!

Now we have much larger rolling stock, the inspection pit at Woody Bay has become awkward to use, being too small, obstructed and no longer suitable for servicing the vehicles we now have.

Given that we also have our Baldwin LYN, we do need decent access underneath for lubrication and inspection on a frequent basis. The heritage carriages also need clear access for inspection and maintenance which with our present pit is slow, awkward and time-consuming. The time has arrived to get stuck in and extend the pit!
