Would have been a long wait for the next train or a bit of an uphill walk to Liskeard!

Or a walk along the flat valley to St Keyne Wishing Well Halt - about a mile and three quarters, which you could have completed before the next train to Looe (that's assuming that you were on your way down when you called at Coombe

I have sort of done that in the past

DCRP has obtained some funding for a Looe Valley Line Heritage Centre in the branch station buildings. Full details here https://www.dcrp.org.uk/new-looe-valley-line-heritage-centre-to-be-set-up-at-liskeard-station/
Also a premiere event on 26 April for the stories they have been gathering https://www.dcrp.org.uk/celebrating-the-heritage-of-the-looe-valley-line/
Well done Richard B and team.
