EXPERIENCE THE GLORIOUS ERA OF STEAM TRAVEL

Discover the excitement and nostalgia of steam travel with a journey back in time on the Bodmin & Wenford Railway, Cornwall’s only full-size railway still operated by steam locomotives.

You’ll receive a warm welcome at the station’s ticket office, before heading out to the atmospheric 1950s style platform. Experience the evocative smells from our steam locomotives burning coal, and the sights and sounds of Bodmin General station, home of our working heritage railway. Stop at the cosy Old Booking Hall Café or browse the gift shop as you await the arrival of one of our heritage locomotives.

Relax in style and enjoy a leisurely 13-mile round trip through beautiful countryside, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone age, as the era of a Cornish branch line in the 1950s reveals itself during the course of your journey.

A perfect attraction for all ages, the Bodmin & Wenford Railway is dog and bicycle friendly and we are dedicated to ensuring that each of our visitors enjoy their visit to the full.

The fun doesn’t have to end at your return to the platform. Why not join us for one of the exciting events held at the Railway all year round? Bodmin General Station and our carriages make stunning venues for all kinds of events – everything from live music to special trains, fine dining to cabaret, there really is something for everyone. Visit our events page to find your dream day or evening out.

Whether it’s a nostalgic trip down memory lane, or your first ever experience of a journey by steam, come along and discover Cornwall’s railway heritage at its best.
