"Our Heritage Transport Weekend is on the 11th and 12th September.

"If you wish to exhibit your vehicle you must book beforehand.

"Needless to say we are all getting very excited!!"

The Helston Railway is the UK's most southerly railway and, according to the organisation, volunteers have worked wonders since work commenced in April 2005.

Starting with a totally overgrown, and in some places impenetrable track bed, the team at Helston Railway has cleared and made ready just over a mile down to the formation.

Nearly 2/3 mile of new track has been laid, starting at Gansey in the north and travelling south through the Trevarno Estate down towards the original site of Truthall Halt.

The new Trevarno Station has been constructed within the Trevarno Gardens and Helston Railway has also been granted planning permission to reinstate Truthall Halt.

Organisers have, however, stated that there will be no public parking at Truthall Halt and that free parking for the event will be available at Prospidnick Station only.
