Murder Mystery Trains

Evenings of 10th and 24th of October

Starting at 7 p.m., our Murder Mystery Trains have been a popular event on our railway for the last 30+ years! Join us this summer season for the ‘1930s – The Vanishing Lady’ performance, brought to you by Murder By Appointment SW and Bodmin Railway.

The disappearance of one of the passengers during the journey sparks interest and concern among the others. They must find the missing lady. But why? Who are they? And who exactly do they represent?

Watch as the story unfolds, listen out for clues, get those grey cells working, and question the cast if you wish to try and piece together the puzzle.

If you can solve the mystery, your name will be put into a draw, and you may be lucky enough to go home with the winning prize.

Tickets start at £19.95 and include a pasty and an arrival drink.



Diesel Day

Saturday 28th

A day purely for all those diesel enthusiasts!

Likely to be the Class 50 ‘Triumph’ hauling the service train. Buy a rover ticket online and ride all day.

Locals Weekend

As a thank you to all our local customers and to celebrate the end of the season, during our last open weekend all locals can visit us and purchase an all-line ticket 1/2 price.

To qualify for your discounted tickets, you will need to have either a TR or PL postcode. This offer will only be available on a walk-in basis, as you will need to bring valid proof of address (e.g., a driving licence or utility bill). The offer cannot be combined with any other discounts.
