Welcome to the Launceston Steam Railway

In view of the escalating number of COVID-19 cases in Cornwall, and concern locally, we have reluctantly had to take the decision to remain closed this year, to protect both our passengers and our small team of staff.

We are sorry for any disappointment caused, and look forward to a more normal year in 2022

Our enchanting narrow gauge railway offers train rides through the unspoilt countryside of Cornwall.  All trains are hauled by lovingly restored Victorian Steam Locomotives.

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.
