Locomotive information and history:
The Lynton and Barnstaple railways three original locomotives (2-6-2T) were built by Manning Wardle & Company of Leeds in 1897 and were named after local rivers; YEO, EXE and TAW. Some modifications were completed during the lives of the locomotives including alterations to the cabs. A fourth loco joined the fleet in May 1898 which had been ordered through the Baldwin Locomotive works of Philadelphia, USA. The loco was a 2-4-2T and was named LYN. The loco fleet was completed in July 1925 when the Southern Railway purchased a further Manning Wardle which was to become LEW.
In a further development of the loco fleet the Ffestiniog Railway constructed a 'new build' replica Manning Wardle almost identical to the original LEW. This new-build was named LYD and carrying the number 190 and was first steamed in August 2010. Although owned by the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways, LYD appears on the LandB for occasional gala duties truly recreating the L&B of its glory days.
