The Little Engines

Editors Notes: 

The Little Engines CAPTION The success of the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway's gala at the end of September/beginning of October can be judged by the number of cars in the main and overflow car parks which can be seen in this clip. Whilst the two recreations of original L&B locomotives ("Lyd" and "Lyn") worked up the line the two "little engines", "Isaac" and "Axe", which have been stalwarts of the early days of the successful reinstatement of the line gave demonstration goods workings within the Woody Bay station limits, so there was always something going on.
