On the way to us and due next week are the Heljan OO9 Lynton & Barnstaple Baldwin 2-4-2 Tank Locomotives!
Catering for the growing interest in British narrow-gauge modelling, Heljan's second British OO9 locomotive will allow modellers to complete their Lynton & Barnstaple Railway locomotive fleet. Lyn was built by Baldwin in 1898 for the L&BR and shipped to Devon in kit form for assembly at Pilton Works. At the time, the railway needed additional motive power but Manning, Wardle was unable to supply a similar machine to those already in service. A superb full-size replica of Lyn was recently completed for the restored Lynton & Barnstaple Railway in North Devon
