Not at the Lizard but a few miles away at Kilcobben Cove. This is a private line for transporting Lifeboat men to and from the station and the cliff top and to bring casualties to the top from the lifeboat.
A crude lift system was installed in 1961 but was upgraded to a railway in 1995.
The new inclined elevator system was designed by Austin and McClean of Bournemouth. Transmission engineers Highfield Gears Power manufactured the one-off 70/1 lifting gear and the 520-mm twin drums that spool up the twin 13-mm diameter ropes, raising and lowering the passenger car a travel of 45 meters at 0.54 meters per second. The rails, eight feet apart, are angled at 38°
