A busy day at BODMIN GENERAL railway station.

Bodmin General, is the HQ station of the Bodmin and Wenford Railway... another preserved railway, this time in Cornwall.  The station is in the middle of the route of the railway, meaning that you first catch a train out towards Bodmin Parkway, where it shares a station with the mainline. The train then returns to Bodmin General, and goes out the other way to Boscarne Junction. You can see a plan of the railway here....

so here is some of the "action" on a recent visit.....
