Little Gem of a Railway

This really is a little gem of a railway to visit.

I took my Father for his first ride on the Helston Branch since the early 1960's, and he had a fantastic time recounting childhood memories of using the branch regularly.

All the staff are so friendly and helpful, and the ride down the line to just outside Truthall Halt through the beautiful Cornish countryside is delightful. The guard's knowledge of the history of the line added to the whole experience.

Once back at Prospidnick, a visit to the shop and buffet is a must. There is a good selection of gifts to purchase, and the food in the buffet is excellent.
