Watch as the plot unfolds but keep your eyes peeled. Is every passenger who they say they are? Solve the mysteries, have a stab at identifying the correct murderer & be in with a chance of winning a prize – all while enjoying a ride on a steam train.

Tickets include your steam train journey, murder mystery entertainment and a Cornish Pasty supper served at your seat. A bar offering a selection of wines, spirits, locally brewed beers, soft drinks and snacks will be available on board the train.

However you rate your crime-busting ability, we can assure you of a most enjoyable evening with a production that will have your ‘little grey cells’ working overtime.
