Steam Train Rides and Diesel Train Rides – Scenic Views – Good Food.

The Helston Railway Preservation Society was the result, back in 2002 of a vision by a small number of enthusiasts to re-open a section of the Helston branch line. We now have a 1000 members, and a fully functioning standard gauge heritage railway attraction.

We normally run train rides on Thursday and Sundays from just before Easter until Halloween.
