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 regularly operated by steam locomotives. Relax in style and enjoy a leisurely 13 mile return 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. Passenger train services operate throughout the year, and run daily from mid May to early October. A varied and interesting programme of special events are held each year - Steam and Diesel Galas, Steaming Thru the 40s and several family-orientated events, including an Easter Egg-stravaganza and the visit of Fireman Sam, Postman Pat and Paddington Bear 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.

Trains operate from Bodmin General, the line’s main 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.

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!
