Discover Cornwall’s Railway Heritage at its Best
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.
Relax in style and enjoy a leisurely 13-mile round trip through beautiful Cornish 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.
Trains operate from Bodmin General, the principal station where free coach and car parking is available, to both Bodmin Parkway station – where connections can be made directly with main line railway services – and Boscarne Junction, which is situated directly adjacent to the Camel Trail recreational footpath and cycle way.
Passenger train services operate throughout the year, and regularly from late March to early October.
Join us for a varied and interesting programme of special events and special trains, which are an important part of the Railway’s calendar.
Just a 10-minute walk from the Town Centre, we are proud to be one of Cornwall’s Dog-Friendly attractions!
…The Bodmin & Wadebridge line was one of the first railways in the world to use steam locomotives? It was certainly the first in Cornwall!
