Another day out in Cornwall – the Bodmin & Wenford Railway is a heritage steam railway that has been running since the mid-1980s. There was just the one steam train running on the day we visited – the 4612, which was built by the GWR in 1942 and retired from active service in 1965. After restoration in 2001, it was moved to Bodmin.
Engine 5552 – built in 1928 and withdrawn from service in 1960. It has been at Bodmin since 2003 and is currently undergoing a major overhaul.
