A 9.5mm black and white silent film showing scenes of The Lynton and Barnstaple Railway in North Devon, England in and around 1935 when it was owned and operated by the Southern Railway. Also to be seen is the last down train over the route on Sunday 29th September 1935, the auction of railway stock and equipment shortly after and finally, footage of the line being dismantled in 1936. Today the railway is slowly being rebuilt by volunteers and replica carriages and locomotives are being constructed. For further details on this fascinating railway, both as it was then and as it is today, please visit the following; http://www.lynton-rail.co.uk/ My source indicates that this archived footage is no longer copyrighted and is now understood to be in the public domain.
