About Bodmin and Wenford Railway

Cornwall’s only full-size railway still operated by steam locomotives. The line was originally closed in October 1983 and reopened just 3 years later, as a passenger train attraction by the newly formed Bodmin Railway Preservation Society. Running on the line from Bodmin and Wenford, passengers can experience a service of steam locomotives, high tea in the dining carriage and all round family fun.

Prices vary against their in and out of season timetables. So checking the website for details is essential.
