1852-53 | Angarrack station opened - and closed

Angarrack had a station - very briefly!


The Hayle Railway introduced passenger trains on 23 May 1843. The service was closed on 16 February 1852. On 11 March 1852 the West Cornwall Railway opened a new station. The old station had been on the section of the Hayle Railway that was closed entirely as a steep rope-worked incline descended from Angarrack to sea level at Copperhouse, it was replaced by a much gentler incline to the new Hayle railway station. However the new Angarrack station was closed in 1853.

Angarrack had its own station on the new main line, but it was very short-
lived. It was closed in 1853, within a few months of its opening. It stood
on the North Side of the track at Milestone 318, but nothing of it remains
today to indicate its exact location
