The long awaited return of steam operated passenger services on the Helston Railway is nearly over! We are pleased to announce that steam trains will be in operation for our ‘Return to the 1940’s event on the 27 & 28 May.  Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust owned Peckett 0-4-0ST ‘Kilmersdon’ will be in operation throughout the Sunday & Monday.

Marketing Director Ben Harding comments “Our popular Return to the 1940’s event this year is made even more special by the return of steam passenger trains to the line for the first time in over 55 years. This as well as military vehicles, period music and 1940s displays is set to make a firm favourite in the Helston Railway calendar”

The first Steam passenger train will depart Prospidnick Halt on 27th May at 10.30am.
