Lappa Valley Steam Railway Newquay Cornwall

The Lappa valley Steam Railway is a narrow Gauge railway that runs on one of the oldest railway track beds in Cornwall. The original railway was opened in 1849 as a mineral line from Newquay to East Wheal Rose. The line eventually became Great Western’s Railway line from Newquay to Chacewater. The line was closed under the Beeching cuts in 1963.

In 1974 Eric Booth, the founder of Lappa Valley, reopened part of the line
as a narrow-gauge railway. A brand new steam locomotive Zebedee was built for the line by Severn Lamb, arriving in early 1974 with 4 locally built carriages.
