We’re back with our weekly chance to look behind the scenes at the Bodmin & Wenford Railway. We tracked Will down to the running shed where he and the team are working in the boiler of 4612 ahead of a hydraulic test on Friday.
The railway is currently closed due to the current third lockdown. However we are working tirelessly to ensure we are able to open later this year. We are currently planning to reopen around Easter time, subject to Covid restrictions, and good progress is being made on many fronts to make sure the railway is in the best possible place to reopen.
The Bodmin & Wenford Railway has been announced as one of the successful recipients of funding in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s first wave of Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage grants.
