Launceston station seen from the roadbridge. Note the track on the platform used for winter storage of coach.

1883 Hunslet "Lilian" has just arrived from New Mills with a train.

The loco is uncoupled and it runs around its train.

A view of the open footplate - no shelter from bad weather!

The 3 coach train awaits departure.

"Lilian" pulls out of Launceston station.

A later train seen at the other end of the line, New Mills station with Mrs Bowman running around the train.

The driver talks to a group of passengers as departure time approaches.

Returning to Launceston station, with "Dorothea" visible in the shed.

The locomotive is watered on the run round loop.
