October Half-Term : Locals’ Week and Book Launch

After a busy main season, we are currently taking a few weeks off for maintenance work, but will reopen on Sunday 26th for the school half-term week.

Once again, we are teaming up with our local paper, the Cornish & Devon Post, to run one of our popular Locals’ Week special offers. If you live locally, don’t forget to pick up your copy of ‘The Post’ next week (edition published Thursday 23rd), as inside will be a voucher giving discounted fares for the whole of half-term week (Sunday 26th – Friday 31st).

We are also hosting the launch of a brand new book on Sunday 26th, looking back one hundred years to World War One. ‘Trains to the Trenches’, by local author Andrew Roden, tells the story of the men, locomotives and tracks that took the world to war, including the hundreds of miles of narrow gauge railways which were built to serve the trenches. Appropriately our carriages have all been built using parts of wagons from the World War One trench railways, and much of our original track was recovered from the Royal Navy Armaments Depot at Ernesettle in Plymouth.
