It may only have about 3 stops on the entire line, but it's a lovely, enthusiastically run railway. You have to drive past some farmyard barns to get here and you start to doubt the road signs at some points and whether the railway exists....More

Truly admire what the volunteers and achieved with this railway. The station at the end of the line was a real gem (see photo below) & I look forward to future restoration work!

So, all cards on the table, this visit didn’t start the best way. We visited here with one of our daughters who drove her own car . We set off from Helston in two cars and I followed my satnav on my iPhone. The postcode...More

I have never been to this railway before. We arrived mid afternoon and was greeted by some very enthusiastic volunteers. This railway is still very much an embronic railway in the making so don't go expecting something like the Worth Valley or North Yorkshire Moors....More
