Press Release No 041/10 22 November 2010 - IMMEDIATE RPJ/221110/LP&RP ALL ABOARD THE CHRISTMAS MURDER MYSTERY SPECIAL IN a new venture this year, the Bodmin & Wenford Railway is running a one-off seasonal Christmas Murder Mystery Special this year, during the evening of Friday 3 December. The summer season of Murder Mystery trains – which have completed their sixteenth summer season – is an extremely popular element of the Railway’s season, and the Christmas special will run to the same basic format but with a special seasonal plot and the train (which will be steam heated throughout) suitably decorated. The special evening trains are presented by Duchy Murder Productions – the West of England’s leading murder event specialists – in conjunction with the Bodmin & Wenford Railway, and have been seen on both ITV and BBC Television. Following departure from Bodmin General station, participants endeavour to solve a murder mystery whilst enjoying a nostalgic 13-mile journey through the beautiful Cornish countryside behind one of the Railway’s excellent fleet of ex-Great Western Railway steam locomotives. Watch and listen as the professionally staged murder plot unfolds before your very eyes as the evening progresses, whilst being able to question the cast for extra clues…… You will also be able to view the murder scene and choose your suspect……and perhaps win yourself a prize!

The Murder Mystery Special is also ideal for groups, or perhaps for that office/works party with a difference! There is a well-stocked bar on the train, serving a good range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Fancy dress is optional! The Bodmin & Wenford Railway’s Christmas Murder Mystery Special evening on 3 December starts from Bodmin General Station at 7pm, and the whole experience lasts for approximately 2½-3 hours.

End Note to Editors The Bodmin & Wenford Railway – Cornwall’s only working standard gauge heritage branch line and one of its principal tourist attractions – operates predominantly steam, and some heritage diesel, trains over a distance of 6½ miles from Bodmin Parkway to Boscarne Junction via Bodmin General through some very picturesque scenery in the heart of the county – a living museum of Cornish railway heritage.
