Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway
A very special photoshoot saw cargo with a difference carried up and down the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway
Lynton and Lynmouth were treated to an unusual sight yesterday (Monday) as classic cars were ferried up and down on the Cliff Railway.
It was part of a photoshoot by Practical Classics car magazine, inspired by an old photograph of a 1905 car on the platform belonging to railway financier George Newnes.
Cliff Railway director Rob Shaddick said the day had been a success, with all the cars and everyone kept safe.
He added: “The staff really pulled together; there was quite a few hidden logistics that needed to be sorted out.
“Also, quite a bit of behind the scenes fabrication of the platform to ensure that the cars were safely strapped on.”
Cars involved included a Morris Minor, Triumph Vitesse, Triumph Herald, MGB GT and MG Midget among others.
The railway shoot was followed by a drive into the Valley of Rocks and along the Woody Bay coast road for more pictures.
Mr Shaddick said: “A long day but very well received and something completely different.”
