New Display in Museum.
TawLink is a new idea for a light railway between Braunton and Barnstaple.
It will share the old railway track with the Tarka Trail path and will use modern battery powered trams to provide a year round service.
The Museum is hosting a display from 11th November until 4th December, where you can come and see more details of the project. Although the main display boards have now been removed, we still have information flyers available and the petition sheet for you to sign.
We are hoping to get a lot of support and invite you to show this by signing a Petition which will be presented to North Devon Council and asking them to fund a 'Pre-feasibility' study to be carried out by an independent, professional body to assess the proposal's business case and technical challenges.
Braunton Farmers & Craft Market.
Museum Model Railway.
Come and see what Braunton Railway Station looked like in the 1950's.
We have built a large scale model of the Station area, which can be operated by the public, (costs 20p for 5 minutes !)
There are a lot of photos and drawing to explain where the station was sited, between Caen Street and the Police Station. The site is now occupied by the main village Car Park and Medical Centre.
The Surf Museum building was the Goods Shed and Wensley's Newsagent shop was the Station Masters House.
Free admission to the museum, donations appreciated though.
The Combe Rail Project.
Combe Rail is an exciting new project to establish a community and heritage railway on part of the track-bed of the former Barnstaple and Ilfracombe Railway, between Braunton and Barnstaple. The museum is a supporter of their efforts.
