                           ALL ABOARD THE

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


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!
