Congratulations to the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership on their successful bid to the CCIF.  The Looe line has, perhaps, one of the highest proportions of leisure / tourist traffic in GWR land, and what a fitting location for a Heritage Centre to inform and attract further passengers.  The recent stepping up of the minimum train length from 1 to 2 carriages means an increase in overall seats ... all set for passenger number growth on the line - sharing in the beauty and helping (I'm sure) the operating finances.

£40,000 funding from Great Western Railway’s Customer & Communities Improvement Fund will see a new Looe Valley Line Heritage Centre created at Liskeard station, following a successful bid by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership.

The centre will be established in three rooms on Platform 3 at Liskeard station, currently used by the Partnership as a summer information point and shop.

This building is the Liskeard and Looe Railway’s original station building which opened, with the horseshoe curve to Coombe Junction, in May 1901.

Article continues at the D&CRP web site which I commend to you.
