Tamar line rail service extended for summer

By Cornish Times in Transport

Great Western Railway will be introducing a new, later Sunday train for the Summer on the Tamar Valley Line from Sunday (May 21).

The train will leave Plymouth at 20:01, arriving at Gunnislake at 20:47.  The return service will leave Gunnislake at 20:50 and arrive at Plymouth at 21:35.  

As always, the train will call at Calstock, Bere Alston, Bere Ferrers and Plymouth suburban stations. It will run every Sunday until September 10.

The extra train will mean there will be six services between Plymouth and Gunnislake on Sundays during the Summer.  

The move follows lobbying by the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership, a non profit partnership between councils and the rail industry which works to promote the Tamar Valley Line and other rural branch lines in the two counties and seek improvements to services and facilities.
