About the Bodmin & Wenford Railway

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.

Trains operate on the Bodmin & Wenford Railroad throughout the year but run on a daily basis only from May to the end of September. They are typically steam-hauled but the operator reserves the right to use diesel locomotives without prior notice. Next to the ‘standard’ rides according to a preset schedule/timetable, there are also various special trains and events, a variety of on-site facilities and experiences including the ability to drive a train, while the trains are also available for hire for private parties, celebrations and special occasions.
