Our car park is adjacent to the station (PL31 1AG) and holds around 50-70 cars. Please note that our car park is on the smaller side and can fill up very quickly when we are busy. We recommend the nearest Pay-and-Display Victoria Square (PL31 1EB), if ours if full. Victoria Square is a 4-5 minute walk from the station.

We also have limited forecourt parking and this is reserved for those who hold a Blue Badge. This is located immediately at the front of the station, with level access through the booking hall and onto the platform. A Blue Badge must be displayed in car when parking here. If you are not mobility impaired and park here you will be asked to move.

Bodmin General is our only station with parking. Boscarne Junction station has no road access or parking. Bodmin Parkway carpark is for those travelling on the mainline railway network and owned by privately by Parkopedia. We do not take any responsibility for passengers parking at Bodmin Parkway.



Toilets can be found at the platform at Bodmin General Station, including a wheelchair accessible toilet and baby changing facilities. Please note that there are no toilet facilities at Boscarne Junction Station.

There are also toilets at Bodmin Parkway Station – please see further details about access at Bodmin Parkway below.

On Board the Train

We welcome pushchairs on to the train, however due to the historic nature of the carriages, such as narrow doors etc, they would need to be left in the guards compartment where they will be kept safe until your departure. A member of BR staff will gladly assist you with this.

Facilities for wheelchair user visitors are available on the majority of our daytime trains, with a ramp to ease boarding from the platform. Up to two wheelchairs can be accommodated at any one time, please contact us to book a wheelchair space. Those who are not wheelchair bound are able to store their wheelchair on the platform.

There are toilets on board the trains, although the majority of our carriages retain their original 1950’s features and are fitted with traditional narrow doors; access to these is not possible in a wheelchair.


Passengers with Limited Mobility

Access to Bodmin General station and the platform is level, however our historic railway carriages are restored to reflect their original construction, and therefore access while boarding the train is via stepping up to board from the platform and down to alight.

We do offer a ramp for those with limited mobility or wheelchair users. Please inform the Booking Office on arrival and ask for the train Guard if you need a ramp.


The Booking Office is fitted with an induction hearing loop.

Wheelchair Access

On our event trains (for which pre-booking for all passengers is required) wheelchair accommodation is sometimes available. Murder Mystery trains unfortunately do not have accommodation for wheelchair users. Please contact us to discuss your access requirements before booking.

At Bodmin General: There is level access from the station forecourt, into the booking hall (from where your train tickets are purchased) and onto the platform for wheelchairs. There is a wheelchair accessible toilet at the station.

The Coffee Shop and Gift Shop have level or ramped access from the platform and can all be accessed by a standard-width wheelchair, although circulation/turning space is rather limited.

Colesloggett Halt: This is a very rural station, to which access can only be gained on foot via a rough track/ footpath. Access by wheelchairs is not recommended.

Boscarne Junction: Access to the platform is via a ramp off the Camel Trail. The Trail can be used by wheelchairs, but the nearest car park is approximately ½-mile away from the station (adjacent to The Borough Arms public house, just off the main A389 Bodmin-Wadebridge road at Dunmere). The station waiting room, which is open when daytime trains are operating, can be accessed by wheelchairs. There are no toilet facilities at the station.

Bodmin Parkway

This is a station on the main line railway network (between Plymouth and Penzance), operated by Great Western Railway, to which Bodmin Railway trains have exclusive access rights to Platform 3.
Access between the main line platforms, from the car park to the BR platform, and from the platform to inside our Buffet and the GWR ticket office is normally via a footbridge, which has steps. Unfortunately, there is no access for passengers with restricted mobility, or passengers who use wheelchairs to join our serves at Bodmin Parkway. We recommend Bodmin General as the best starting point for your visit.

Autism Friendly

The BR support the National Autistic Society Cornwall (NAS Cornwall) in their quest to make Bodmin Cornwall’s first Autism friendly town.
There are often loud noises at the station, as you would expect when our steam trains are running, but we are happy to email more information about what to expect in advance of your visit, just get in touch.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your visit more comfortable and enjoyable, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We currently do not run any Quiet Trains but are looking into this for Christmas 2024 for our Santa by Steam trains.

Dietary Requirements

With advance notice, we are able to cater for visitors with most dietary requirements, including gluten free, dairy free and vegan, in our coffee shops and on-board catering. Please contact us in advance of your visit to discuss your requirements.


On our daytime trains we offer our concessionary rate to disabled passengers and a discounted ticket for carers, to those who require support to visit the railway. Please note carers will need to show proof of valid ID – you can find out what ID we accept on our FAQ page here.

Assistance Dogs

We welcome assistance dogs in all our carriages and station buildings. No charge is made, though we ask that dogs are kept on a lead and on the floor, keeping the central aisles and corridors clear.
