Description:
This article is about the station on the Looe Valley Line in Cornwall. For that in Oxfordshire see Combe railway station.


Coombe Junction Halt railway station serves the villages of Coombe and Lamellion near Liskeard, Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is situated on the Looe Valley Line and operated by First Great Western. All trains on this line have to reverse at Coombe Junction, but only a very few continue the short distance into the platform to allow passengers to alight or join the train.

The term "halt" was finally removed from British Rail timetables and station signs and other official documents by 1974: the return of the term came only for these two stations in 2008. Coombe Junction was never termed "halt" until 2008.
