Journey back in time at the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and experience the glorious era of steam travel on Cornwall's only full size railway still operated by steam locomotives. Passenger train services operate between February and December and run daily through the summer with many themed journeys and special events. Bodmin General has car parking facilities for our passengers. This FREE car park is sited directly adjacent to the station and available for the exclusive use of our own visitors and staff. Steamers Cafe at Bodmin General Station is open on all train operating days – serving a good variety of hot and cold drinks, Cornish Pasties, sausage rolls, freshly cut sandwiches, cakes, snacks and sweets. There is seating available inside and outside the cafe for customers. Along the platform, towards the signalbox, you will find a small Picnic Area, should you choose to bring your own food and drink with you during your visit. At Bodmin Parkway Station, the old Signalbox on the Down platform has been converted to a Café, which is operated by the Bodmin & Wenford Railway, providing a valuable service to main line travellers, but also to walkers and our own passengers. The Signalbox Cafe serves a range of hot and cold food, snacks and non-alcoholic drinks. A warm welcome is guaranteed……and the home made cakes have to be tasted to be believed!
