Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Locomotive/Tail Lamp manufactured by Polkey. Another lamp from this railway that has some, but not total provenance. Reputedly, it belonged to the widow of a former employee who purchased it a a sale either at Barnstaple or Pilton when the L&B closed in 1935. Looking at the accompanying photograph taken on the final day, the Bunker lamp looks very similar although not identical. It is known that a number of different lamps were used by the L&B and the locos indeed carried a variety of different types as spares. The lamp is bereft of paint and has the number 30 on both sides. The brass makers plate is also on one side and the original reservoir and burner is in situ.
