Historical background
The Lynton and Barnstaple railway originally had 16 passenger carriages built in 1897 by the Bristol Wagon and Carriage Works Co. and added a 17th themselves in 1911. They were all substantially built, sharing a similar outward appearance and many common parts. Passenger comfort was high up on their specification. The original L&BR coach livery was terracotta with salmon upper panels. A few years later this was replaced by Indian red and white. Upon the Southern Railway’s takeover of the line in 1923 all coaches were renumbered into the SR scheme and received a coat of Maunsell olive green, which they retained until the closure of the L&B in 1935. Most were scrapped, but two survived intact; one is at the NRM in as-withdrawn condition, and the other is in daily service on the Ffestiniog Railway. The reformed Lynton and Barnstaple railway have recreated a further two (so far) using many original parts. Numbers 5 and 6 (or SR 6364 and 6365 respectively) are the basis of this first release. These were the only pure composite coaches on the line, catering for both Third and First class passengers.
