This page is a portal to other pages in RailWest which describe in more detail various historical aspects of the former Callington Branch railway line from Bere Alston to Callington, operated by British Railways (Southern Region) and its predecessors. Topics covered include the history, stations, signalling and locomotives etc. Detailed historical coverage of the line ceases circa-1970, but some information is provided about subsequent changes.

The author has been gathering material on this branch line for several years, but there is still much to be learnt about this interesting line, of which about half is still in regular passenger use. Grateful acknowledgement is given to all those who have helped along the way to record at least a small part of the history of this railway. Additional information is always welcome and can be sent by e-mail to RailWest.
