Oldest locomotive pulls them in at steam gala
The world's oldest narrow-gauge steam locomotive was among a number of historic trains restored to their former glory for a steam gala.
Thousands of people visited Woody Bay Station in North Devon at the weekend for the Lynton and Barnstaple (LBR) Railway Autumn Gala.
Prince, the oldest train, hauled three LBR heritage carriages including No.16 – the world's newest narrow-gauge carriage.
Chairman of the railway trust Peter Miles said: "We have had lots of happy faces here, and it is great seeing the original coaches here.

"We could feel satisfied with the scheme we are running. It is not just an attraction but it is also educational and we generate £1 million for the local economy every year."
The original carriages were sold after the railway closed down in 1935. But after the line reopened in 2004 the trust managed to locate and restore them over a few months.
The station is the highest narrow-gauge railway station in England, located 1,000 feet up on wild Exmoor.
This year's railway gala marked the 78th anniversary of when the original railway closed on September 29, 1935.
