Upgrade works to signals in Cornwall by Network Rail has meant that the Night Riviera has not been able to run to its' full, usual timetable. That work is now nearing completion and the full Sleeper timetable is expected to restart from this Friday 22 March.

To mark the restart, customers and local leaders are invited to come and have a look at the sleeper facilities, including a tour of the berths, the onboard sleeper lounge car and our sleeper lounge with showers.

The sleeper will be on the platform from 1030 to 1330, and will be open for general viewing from 1100.
