How to find us!
We are based in the rural village of Prospidnick 2 1/4 miles as the crow flies, to the North of the town of Helston.
The address is Helston Railway, Trevarno Farm, Prospidnick, TR13 0RY.
If you use the post code in your Sat Nav it may not take you directly to our car park, and can take you a long way up the hill past our entrance. We are actually only about 100m west of the large railway bridge.
However if you type Helston Railway straight into Google Maps, it shows exactly where we are. You can scroll down this page to see Google Maps.

At the southern end of our track is Truthall Halt, and if you would like to walk or cycle there you can also join the train at this restored halt which is exactly as it was when the line was in operation. Sorry, there is no car park at Truthall.
For more detailed directions to Prospidnick from Helston and Camborne please scroll down to the bottom of this page. There is also some information about public transport.
You will need to get your tickets from the ticket office and shop, alongside the car park, before heading down to the train, which takes about 5 minutes.
The trains start at Prospidnick Halt, about a 200 metre walk from our ticket office.
The one mile, each way, train journey out to Truthall Halt and back takes around 40 minutes. Our train runs along our restored railway line with some extensive views across the countryside towards the Lizard and South Coast.
At Truthall Halt the train waits for a few minutes, for passengers to take a look around, before it returns to Prospidnick.
Whilst you are at Prospidnick, why not spend some time in our little gift shop with its extensive range of railway themed gifts and souvenirs, or browse our extensive collection of pre-loved railway books and models, or for the younger children our collection of pre-loved Thomas Toys.
Or, you might visit our buffet in the restored railway carriage, serving hot and cold drinks and snacks and light lunches. We also stock gluten free options. Sunday lunch is an especial favourite, but you might need to book (contact Fred on 07368 340612)
