L&B se­cures more trackbed

Steam Railway (UK) - - News -

Al­most all the trackbed from Woody Bay to Black­moor Gate has been se­cured for the Lynton & Barnstaple Rail­way. The sale of a house in Par­ra­combe, pur­chased last year to se­cure the trackbed on its land, has pro­vided funds to buy a cot­tage with grounds that in­clude al­most half of Par­ra­combe sta­tion. Con­tracts have also been ex­changed for roughly 30 acres of farm­land, in­clud­ing al­most half a mile of trackbed. In Es­sex, the L&BR Trust’s car­riage work­shop is on the move from an in­dus­trial es­tate near Great Yeld­ham, which is to be re­de­vel­oped. A new 3,000 sq ft work­shop is be­ing leased near Colch­ester.
