Description:
Taw was the name of a Manning Wardle 2-6-2T locomotive which was built in 1898 for Lynton and Barnstaple Railway. Taw was scrapped in 1935

Taw, like all the locomotives on the L&B, was named after the River Taw, a local river with a three-letter name.

The tradition of naming L&B steam locos after local rivers continues into the 21st Century, with Lyd, a replica of Lew (the fourth locomotive built to this basic design), operational on the Ffestiniog railway and the Welsh Highland Railway

A 7.25 inch gauge verision of Taw was built by J. Horsfield in 1999 and runs on the Eastleigh Lakeside Railway.

Closer to the L&B, the railway's trust currently owns one steam locomotive - renamed Axe - which, although it did not serve on the historic L&B, has been restored for use on the new line, currently based at Woody Bay.
