28/5/2004. York Exhibition.
New build Southern narrow gauge Lyd still with some way to go. She is now (15/8/2011) finished and in service but she moves around a bit so I'm not sure where she is.
This is a replica of one of the long-lost Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Manning Wardle locomotives. These fine engines were last seen in operation in 1935, after which the line they ran on closed and the locos were scrapped - with the exception of one which was exported to Brazil and never seen again.
