Launceston’s Southern Railway Station Model
Come and see the 3mm modelof Launceston’s Southern Railway Station, as it appeared in the 1930s, built by the late Brian Tunbridge over the twenty years of his retirement.
Launceston Railway Station was served by both the Great Western Railway (GWR) and the London & South Western Railway (LSWR). The first station was opened in 1865 (GWR) and the second in 1886 (LSWR). The two lines unusually shared a back-to-back signal box from 1916.
Trains continued to use their own platforms until nationalisation when all trains stopped at LSWR station. Trains ran until 1966.
