Lynton & Barnstaple Railway

The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway opened in May 1898 and closed just after 37 years in 1935. This 19 mile line and its purposely chosen gauge of 1ft 11 1/2in (600mm) was constructed to follow the natural contours of the North Devon countryside. The one-mile section in use today was reopened in 2004 and operates from Woody Bay station to Killington Lane.

There she goes, Axe 2451, on her way to Killington Lane.

Nearly home, Axe returns.
