At an open day at Bodmin General station visitors get a ride in a guards van. The trains operate on a 13 mile long railway from Bodmin Parkway mainline station via Bodmin General to Boscarne Junction. The Bodmin heritage railway was originally a branch of the Great Western Railway. In 1888 it was connected to Boscarne Junction which in turn provided a connection to the Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway. The saddle tank locomotive pictured, a Bagnall 0-4-0, was the last steam locomotive to work in Devonport Dockyard and is owned by the Cornish Steam Locomotive Preservation Society.
