History made at Woody Bay

Dear all

Just to inform you that at about 16.30 today 18th April 2003 a Simplex Locomotive named “Tich” made history by becoming the first locomotive to run alongside the platform at Woody Bay Station (Lynton & Barnstaple Railway) since 1935!

Credit must be given to all the L&B volunteers who turned out to lay in the new turnouts and the track necessary to accomplish this.

As we have a habit of saying at the L&B – “The impossible we achieve with ease – however the miracles do take us a lot longer – but we’re working at it!”
