Bugle railway station serves the village of Bugle which is located between Par and Newquay in Cornwall. It is situated on the Atlantic Coast Line.
The first railway here was a horse-worked line from Par Harbour to "near the Bugle Inn" at Molinnis. It was built by Joseph Treffry and opened on 18th May 1847. Later, on 1st June 1874, the Cornwall Minerals Railway opened continuing past Molinnis to join up with another of Treffry's tramways to Newquay but carried only goods traffic. A passenger service was introduced on 20th June 1876 when a station with a single platform on the north side of the line was provided at Bugle.
The line from Bugle eastwards to Goonbarrow Junction was doubled on 20th July 1930, with the new line passing behind the platform to create an island platform. From 29th November 1964 the original line was only used only for freight trains to reach the Carbis branch. This meant that all passenger trains now use the 1930 platform face. The Carbis branch closed on 25th August 1989 leaving just a single track through the station and all the way to Newquay, which limits the amount of train services that can travel through to Newquay each day.
