The Bodmin & Wenford Railway is a heritage railway and the only full-size railway in Cornwall where you can see and ride steam hauled trains. These operate on a 13 mile long railroad from Bodmin Parkway via Bodmin General to Boscarne Junction, enabling passengers to experience the charm and appeal of the ‘Steam Era’ while enjoying the sight of the Cornish countryside.
Bodmin General Station is the headquarters and the Railway’s focal point. It is centrally situated and is a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre of Bodmin. The station has a café, gift shop and other facilities, including a wheelchair accessible toilet and baby change facility.
At Bodmin General there is also a workshop viewing area – open on most train operating days – where you can to see the restoration and repair work being carried out on the locomotives and rolling stock. There are also locomotives and rolling stock on display. Please note that access to the workshop viewing area and yard may be restricted on certain occasions for health & safety reasons, such as when coal loading or welding are taking place.
