The Bodmin and Wenford Railway

The Great Western Railway opened its branch line from Bodmin Road to Bodmin General 27 May 1887, and on 3 September 1888 a junction line was opened to join with the Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway at which had opened its line from Bodmin North to Wadebridge in 1834. The Padstow line wasn’t opened until 1899

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.

Trains operate on the Bodmin & Wenford Railroad throughout the year but run on a daily basis only from May to the end of September.

On Sunday 1st Nov we spent the day on the Steam train, which runs on a 13-mile long railroad from Bodmin Parkway via Bodmin General to Boscarne Junction. We had a wonderful time experiencing the charm and romance of the ‘Steam Era’ while traveling around the Cornish countryside.
