More about the Bodmin & Wenford Railway

Step back in time on the Bodmin & Wenford Railway and take in the beautiful sights of the Cornish countryside while relaxing on this 13-mile branch line. Trains operate from Bodmin General, where free coach and car parking is available, to Bodmin Parkway and Boscarne Junction, which is adjacent to the Camel Trail recreational footpath and cycle way.

We recommend you spend at least half a day at the Bodmin & Wenford Railway – the journey takes about two hours by steam, or even less if you travel on the Auto Train as the locomotive doesn’t have to change ends.
