Lynton and Barnstaple Railway Short Trucks

These trucks are rolling stock used for transporting materials throughout various railways.

Biography

Thomas & Friends

When Diesel came on trial to the North Western Railway, he attempted to pull some old, rusty and empty trucks. Diesel found it difficult to move the trucks and was very forceful with them, as they had stiff joints and some of their brakes were on. He got so frustrated with the trucks that he accidentally overturned some when their brakes finally snapped. Diesel could not move the remaining trucks and was forced to give up, as a result, he was made into a laughing stock by the other trucks.[1]

These trucks are commonly used for transporting China clay and stone, and are usually found at the Clay Pits and the Ffarquhar Quarry. They were once used by Edward for transporting pieces of scrap from Wellsworth Scrap Yard.
