Locals Week

Enjoy a discounted day out this October half term week in conjunction with our local paper The Cornish & Devon Post.

Once again we have teamed up with ‘The Post’ for one of our popular Locals Week special offers. Inside the 20th October edition of the paper will be a voucher offering generous discounts on our normal fares.

Enjoy the chance to ride through the unspoilt Cornish countryside behind a Victorian steam locomotive, fifty years after the original railway through Launceston closed.

The café, shop and museum will all also be open, and for those thinking of Christmas gifts for enthusiasts, this is the last chance to shop locally for railway books, DVDs and related items.

Director Jonathan Mann said: “We recently had a visitor from East Anglia who was bowled over by the beauty of the Cornish countryside seen from the train. She was very amused however when I told her of a conversation overheard in our café, when one person (from another part of the country) said to another ‘It’s all very well, but there is nothing to see but countryside!'”

The half-term service runs from Sunday, October 23 to Friday, October 28 inclusive, and if the good weather holds, it is an excellent time to enjoy the valley. Trains leave Launceston hourly from 11am to 4pm. Discounted fares only valid with voucher from ‘The Post’, normal fares apply otherwise.
