Arrived by First Great Western at Bodmin Parkway Station. Had about an Hour to wait so visited the Signal Box Cafe with is run by the B&WR. Had the feel of a normal station cafe. Train arrived hauled by a class 33 diesel loco as steam engine had failed due to a broken spring. Not a problem for me is I like classic Diesel Traction. The BR Mk1 Coaches are in Excellent condition. Train Departed ontime. We made our way to Bodmin General. On arrival I found the station in prestine GWR fashion. A real credit to those involved. Progress is a bit slow as a shunt move is required at 'General' station before moving onto Boscarne Jct. This station is only 'Junction' by name. Simply one platform & a loop for the loco to run round its train. The steam loco was repaired and back on our train for the return trip. This is a pleasant heritage railway. Not really a full dayout unless linked with something else in the area. For me & my son its back on First Great Western at 'Parkway' station after a few hours visit.
