GB Railfreight to visit Bodmin Railway on the 14th!

 

Following their visit to Penzance Long Rock depot for the open day, GB Railfright Class 66 and 73 locos will be visiting the Bodmin & Wenford Railway on Sunday 14th April for an impromptu diesel event!

This will hopefully see the first ever passenger train in Cornwall to be hauled by a class 73ED, whilst returning an ex-Southern region locomotive to Boscarne Jct! The class 66 is also planned to be used on some services too!

 

Keep an eye out in the coming days and at the Long Rock open day for the proposed timetable and come join us at the Bodmin & Wenford railway for what will hopefully be a historic day for diesel traction and railways in Cornwall!

Loco's are expected to be 66714 and 73107 but are subject to their availability on the day!

 

47306 & 50042 will also be returning during the day. Lots of diesel action!

 

May the 4th is EE Day!

Our English Electric pair 37142 & 50042 will be out all day hauling an intensive time table.

Welcome to Bodmin Heritage Diesels

The Heritage Diesel Locomotive's based at the Bodmin and Wenford railway are cared for by a small dedicated group of volunteers. Our aim is to preserve, maintain and operate the ex British Railways locomotives that regularly worked in Cornwall or the South West.

 

Why not visit us and have a day out on the Cornish gradients, which average 1:40 for several miles on both of our branch lines.

 

Enjoy the sight and sound as our loco's work hard climbing back from the Fowey or Camel river valleys to our headquarters at Bodmin General station.
