Artist's Description

“Now down to just two , for the winter months, this little Park and ride train moves thousands of folk into and ouf St Ives”

The station was opened by the Great Western Railway on 1 June 1877 as the terminus of a 4.25 miles (6.84 km) 7 ft 0 1⁄4 in (2,140 mm) gauge branch line from St Erth which until then had been known as St Ives Road to indicate its position as the railhead for the town.The platform was on a sharp curve with a goods shed behind it. The town end of the platform was used to load railway trucks with fish that was caught by the many local boats, many of which were drawn up on Porthminster beach, just below the station. Immediately outside the station was the 106 yards (97 m) long St Ives Viaduct. A small engine shed was situated on the far side of the viaduct
