Network Rail said the vandalism should not cause any delays to the Truro to Falmouth train, despite earlier reports of a 20 minute wait for passengers.
British Transport Police have been notified and are investigating the theft.
A spokesman for Network Rail said: "These incidents always cause major disruption to passengers and journeys and for that we apologise. "Cable and metal theft costs us millions of pounds each year and we are cracking down on them."
