Photo Charter 1st October

Our thanks to Martin Creese of 30742 Charters who arranged the photo charter at Woody Bay Monday 1st October. Martin provides this service for the benefit of railway photographers everywhere. Check out his Flickr photostream here for more photos of the L&B as well as many other railways.

Also, our thanks to the train crews for their assistance - especially our guests from the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways.

L&B Trust Member Graham Roose from Burnley has kindly sent us a selection of evocative photos taken Monday 1st October. Graham comments "The railway has certainly come on in the last few years."

1. LYN pilots LYD under a threatening sky.

2. LYD on the 1 in 50.

3. A double-header arrives back at the Woody Bay. The last time views like this could be seen was over 83 years ago.

4. & 5. LYD ascends in Autumn sunshine.

6. LYN arriving. Notice the incline at the back of the train.

7. Is it 2018 or (8.) 1924 the last time trains crossed at Woody Bay?
