Bodmin and Wenford Railway
Type: Steam Railway
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 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 between Bodmin Parkway station – where connections can be made directly with main line railway services – and Boscarne Junction via Bodmin General, the line’s main station where free coach and car parking is available.
Passenger train services operate between February and December, and run daily from June to September. There are normally between four and six return trains each day between Bodmin General and Bodmin Parkway/Boscarne Junction. The majority of services are steam hauled, though trains on Saturdays are normally diesel hauled (steam in August).
Special events are also held throughout the year – Steam and Diesel Galas, a Branch Line Weekend and several family-orientated events, including an “Easter Egg-travaganza” and the visit of Peppa Pig to Bodmin!
The Railway also operates a number of steam-hauled special trains through the season – including ‘Murder Mystery Evening Specials’, ‘Steam Beer & Jazz’ trains, a Luxury Dining Train and, during December, our very popular Santa by Steam specials.
The Bodmin & Wenford Railway looks forward to welcoming you. Come and discover Cornwall’s railway heritage at its very best – a great “attracktion” for all the family!
