Once on the outskirts of Bodmin, follow the brown tourist signs to the "Steam Railway"…
Bodmin General is our ONLY station that has car parking facilities for our passengers. The station is ½-mile from the town centre, on the B3268 towards Lostwithiel, and well signposted from the town centre and all the main roads leading into the town.
