Bodmin Railway

Cornwall’s Premier Steam Railway invites you to take a ride on our 13-mile round-trip through the scenic Cornish Countryside. Step back in time as you experience the era of steam travel at Bodmin Railway.

Hauling full size steam locos and diesel locomotives (on selective Saturdays throughout the year), Bodmin Railway’s branch line runs from Bodmin General, to Boscarne Junction and Bodmin Parkway.

Our 1950’s station is equipped with a gift shop and café, Cornish Rail Coffee Co, also located at main line stations Bodmin Parkway, Liskeard and Penzance.

Operating four train services in the shoulder season (March, May, and October) and five train services during peak season (June through September). Alongside a variety of special events throughout the year, including our popular Murder Mystery Trains, Driver Day Experiences, Steam Shanty Evenings, Galas, and seasonal themed events. 

Venue and train hire is available for weddings, wakes, private functions, and TV and film opportunities. Please get in touch via email to discuss any of these options further.
