History

The Liskeard and Looe Railway was opened on 27 December 1860 to carry goods traffic; passenger trains started on 11 September 1879. The railway in those days connected with the Liskeard and Caradon Railway at Moorswater, and Causeland was the only other station apart from Looe.

In December 1881 Causeland was closed and a new station opened a little further down the valley at Sandplace. Causeland was reopened in June 1888.

Causeland is one of the stations named in Bernard Moore's poem Travelling.

Services

All trains on the Liskeard to Looe "Looe Valley Line" stop at Causeland on request: passengers alighting here must tell the conductor that they wish to do so, and those waiting to join must signal clearly to the driver as the train approaches. There is no Sunday service in the winter.

Description

The single platform is on the right of trains arriving from Liskeard.

Community rail

The railway between Liskeard and Looe is designated as a community rail line and is supported by marketing provided by the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership. The line is promoted under the "Looe Valley Line" name.

"Ye Old Plough House Inn" at Duloe is included in the Looe Valley Line rail ale trail although it is a 30-minute walk away.
