Looe Valley Line song

Looe Valley LineUPDATE: Jim’s music page has been removed so the music is no longer available! Shame as it was good. If you read this Jim, please let me know where I can get access to it again. ~ Chris

I just spotted a tweet by the Looe Tourist Information Centre (TIC) which led me to singer songwriter Jim Wearne.

The link in the tweet took me through to Jim’s music player page which it seems I can embed on ilovelooe.co.uk for your delight.

From what I can gather Jim traveled around Cornwall a few years back and wrote a some songs about the trip including the Looe Valley Line song which is superb.

Jim mentions Ron Overd, who was a well respected Mayor of Looe, the Banjo Pier, The Jolly Sailor pub and of course, the Looe Valley Line.

Looe Valley Line poster

Looe Steam Train posterIn 2010, to celebrate 150 years of the Looe Valley Line, a steam train was brought back onto the line to run a few lucky people down to Looe from Liskeard and back again. It was a one off event (spread over a few weekends) that is unlikely to happen for at least another 50 years.

To celebrate the event I produced a limited edition poster which you can buy right here on ilovelooe.co.uk.

No other posters were produced by any other organisation and I only printed 250. I have about 30 left and will not be printing any more.

If you or someone you know loves steam trains or collects steam train posters then this is a unique item which will not be available soon.

There is more detail and information about this limited edition steam train poster in the online shop.

Grab one while you still can 🙂
