Bodmin (N)

Originally the line was used for the carriage of china clay from Wenford Bridge Branch reversing at Bodmin and onto the docks at Fowey via the main line junction at Bodmin Road. This, together with some 18 passenger workings  and local pickup goods daily means that it was a busy station as well as all traffic from the main line to Wenford Bridge had to reverse direction at Bodmin. Intensive passenger traffic took place in the 1930’s although we are using a larger variety of motive power than was originally used.
