Diesel Gala

We're excited to announce that this year, alongside the Bodmin based fleet of heritage diesels, we'll be joined by 26007; the first of its class to visit Cornwall. Join us for a weekend of intensive timetables, clocking up plenty of miles!

This type 2 loco and its class mates have never been this far south & west before making this another first this year for Bodmin Railway and Cornwall.

As you can imagine we are busy now making plans for our gala to be held over both Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th of September. 26007 in Large logo Red Stripe Rail freight Grey Livery, will make a great partner to the re-launch of 47306 ‘The Sapper’ in its RFD livery.

The rest of our diesel fleet will also be hard at work tackling our steep gradients of up to 1:37. With plenty of departures and lots of ‘thrash’, it’s guaranteed to be a great day for both enthusiasts and the public alike.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September 2019!

Curry Night

Spice up your evening out and join us for a taste of India with a difference.

Board our Curry Night dining train on 14th September for excellent food and drink, together with First Class service.

This diesel-hauled dining experience forms part of our Diesel Gala weekend this September.

Further details for the gala will be released shortly when all is confirmed, so keep an eye out on this page and social media channels for advanced tickets and associated extra's.
