|The (L&B) opened as an independent railway
in May 1898. It was a single track narrow gauge railway just over 19 miles
(30 km) long running through the rugged and picturesque area bordering
Exmoor in North Devon, England. Although opened after the 1896 Light Railways
Act came into force, it was authorised and constructed prior to that act.
Therefore, as with all other railways, it was authorised under its own
Act of Parliament and built to higher (and more costly) standards than
similar railways of the time. In the United Kingdom it was notable as
being the only narrow gauge line required to use main-line standard signalling.
For a short period the line earned a modest return for shareholders, but for most of its life the L&B made a loss.
In 1922 the L&B was taken over by the Southern Railway, and eventually closed in September 1935.
