    The L&B does feature on the RailAvent link, but not in reference to RR, and as RR doesn't come into play until next year, I'm not sure there is any formal link with the L&B as yet. Certainly nothing on the website.

    For answers to any questions like that I suggest the best bet is to phone Woody Bay Station on 01598 763487 or 01598 763683

    Do enjoy your visit whichever loco might be running!

    Your neighbouring railway, the WSR, goes to great lengths (within tight budgetary constraints) to keep things GWR. 53808 notwithstanding (at least this loco worked the majority of its life in Somerset). As a regular, active, WSR volunteer I can confirm that, from my public facing experiences, many of the visitors are only concerned that they are pulled by a puffing steam locomotive and not that the loco is prototypical. I suppose one can look at the NYMR which has an eclectic collection of locomotive types from a number of pre-nationalisation companies.

    The rostered loco was on the website, but not any more.
    From the entry on Issac
    Lyn can do all the runs with Issac as a backup (and no need to publish this), except for the Remembrance service where Axe is more suitable. But Axe may not take 5 coaches?.

    From the other thread looks like Issac will leave and Charles Wytock will become the backup loco till the new MWs are built.

    Lyn and Isaac currently operate when one or the other is out of service for pm's, washouts, etc. A necessary requirement with steam locos. Axe is not capable of hauling 5 coaches. There is no confirmation at this time that Isaac will be leaving the railway.

    At this moment Isaac is the rostered engine for week commencing 20/10.

    Out of curiosity, what is the rationale for submitting a planning application for a property that you don't own? I don't imagine it's constructive when in dialogue with the owner

    by the look of it this planning had already been passed in 2016,obviously now expired and a re-application needs to be submitted,at a cost of £900.
    previous application number 60675 as can be found on the L&B website

    Having looked at the Council's website - I notice a lot of identical objections have been lodged - using a pre-printed letter.

    It does seem a pretty strange thing to do. I know I'd not be very pleased (to put it mildly) if someone submitted a planning application for my house.

    It is a fairly reasonable thing to do (and happens with areasonable degree of frequency in commercial transactions) , if its part of a potential purchase by the railway or someone associated with it. There is no point in negotiating the purchase of the pub if there is no chance that change of use will be granted.

    This campaign-type letter is not unusual in planning applications, and will be seen as such by the planners, but these individuals are as entitled to object as anybody else is to support the application. The statutory consultee responses are as in the previous application, which was granted.

    I haven't seen a response this time round from the current owners, and I understand that the L&B and they are still "in negotiations".

    Interesting. Having looked at the Campaign letter, it merely states "The plans set out to destroy a long-term local amenity". I understood that the plan included the retention of the Pub and Restaurant together with the external areas.

    I looked at the earlier application and could not find a response from the current owners - maybe I looked in the wrong place.

    I read somewhere else that the plan was to initially re-instate the line from Blackmoor Gate to Wistlandpound. This would be detatched from the current line.

    There is no plan to operate Blackmoor to Wistlandpound in isolation-such a move would require duplication of service infrastructure, as the application for the permanent depot is separate, under ENPA's jurisdiction, and therefore subject to the TWAO, so such a proposal would be folly.
