Exclusive to Kernow Model Rail Centre.
The Lynton and Barnstaple Railway (L&B) first opened as an independent railway in May 1898. Due to the terrain across Exmoor the 19 mile long line, between its own station at Lynton, also serving Lynmouth, and the London and South Western Railway’s Barnstaple Town station. was built to 1ft 11 ½ inch narrow gauge. In 1923, the L&B was taken over by the Southern Railway, and eventually closed in September 1935.
The Lynton engine shed was first built with the opening of the line but was altered in 1909 with the shed eves altered, doors widened and also extended. The increased length enabled it to accommodate a full-length L&B coach. The shed's side had wooden battens fitted and from 1908 enamel signs were placed secured to them.
The Lynton concrete coaling stage platform was built to the south of the engine in approximately 1924.
The KMRC Exclusive Scenecraft Lynton Engine shed and separately available but complementary Coal Stage have been produced by Bachmann. The Lynton Engine Shed is modelled in its in its post 1909 condition complete with separately fitted opening doors and a selection of enamel advertising signs on the side.
The KMRC Exclusive Scenecraft Boscarne Junction Ground Frame Hut is also suitable for use as the Lynton Signal Box.
This model is based on the drawings by Michael Bishop and Stephen Phillips, based on Michael's surveys and drawings, historical photographs and paperwork.
