“What a little gem!!! We visited Helston Railway on Easter Sunday, what a fantastic afternoon we had! An Easter egg for our little one and an exciting ride up the track. The sun was out and so were the Buzzards! fantastic! Tea and tea cakes in the buffet car! And storytelling for the little one! Not sure who the storyteller was but she was fabulous from start to finish we were made to feel welcome by everyone. Great value for money! Well done Helston volunteers!!!”
