Heritage railway line in Cornwall gets essential work done
A heritage railway line in Cornwall is being spruced up by a number of volunteers from the surrounding area, as they take advantage of a gap in the train services to catch up on essential maintenance.

The county’s only full-size railway that is still regularly used by steam locomotives, The Bodmin and Wenford Railway runs for six-and-a-half miles through gorgeous countryside and is a popular attraction for any holidaymakers enjoying a break in one of the excellent 5 star cottages in Cornwall.

Services had been suspended for the winter, and a band of dedicated volunteers from far and wide took advantage of the break to use their ‘crowbars, key hammers, considerable muscle and old fashioned know-how’, according to Jimmy James, of the Bodmin Rail Preservation Society.

A popular attraction for the thousands of holidaymakers that travel to the region every year for their holidays, it is just one of many exciting days out that can be had by the whole family. Be sure to check it out for yourself whilst enjoying a summer vacation in Cornwall this year. Image credit: Kevin Dooley
