Welcome to the Launceston Steam Railway

We regret that we remain closed this year. The social distancing and COVID-19 requirements mean that we cannot carry sufficient passengers on our trains to be financially viable.
Our first concern is for the safety and well being of our passengers and staff, but we must also safeguard the Company to ensure that we can continue to operate in the future; we cannot afford to operate at a loss.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.

Our enchanting narrow gauge railway offers train rides through the unspoilt countryside of Cornwall.  All trains are hauled by lovingly restored Victorian Steam Locomotives and standard tickets are valid all day – travel as many times as you like!

You can spend the whole day at Launceston and the steam railway – use the train to travel to Newmills and its popular Farm Park, enjoy a tasty lunch or sweet treat in our Café, browse the fascinating exhibits in our Museum, take home a souvenir of your visit from our well-stocked Gift & Book Shop, and explore the historic Cornish town of Launceston with its famous castle.
