    Railway Car Park

    One of the biggest - if not the biggest - attraction to Bodmin is the steam Railway. Located in the former Great Western Railway Station, this standard gauge line runs between Bodmin town and the main line at Bodmin Parkway, some 4 miles away. Trains run almost every day, to a shedule, and are usually steam hauled. The journey is very picturesque, and is a delight on a summer's day, or even when it's raining heavily!
