One of the GWR road motor services from Helston railway station

Helston railway station was the terminus of the Helston Railway in Cornwall, in England (United Kingdom). It was operated by the Great Western Railway, and absorbed by that railway in 1898,[1] but closed to passengers in 1962.

It secured its place in history when it became the first place in the country with a railway-operated bus service. These GWR road motor services met trains at the station and carried passengers on towards The Lizard.
