This railway uses locomotives built in the 1880s and 90s by the Hunslett Engine Company of Leeds, and links Launceston with Newmills. Ride in open or closed carriages and drink in the marvelous views. In Launceston Station you can browse in the Transport Museum or Railway workshop or buy a gift or a book to take home. Nearby strolls include the ancient Priory ruins, the medieval Priors Bridge. Don't forget to visit the walled town of Launceston, and see where William the Conqueror's half brother built a Norman Castle. Cream teas and other refreshments are available at the Railway Buffet. Disabled visitors can ride on the trains but there is no toilet which will accommodate wheelchairs.
