But to see a 125 set stabled in Truro which later became the train before mine 1430 hrs to Paddington this was a good spot.

The Gala on Easter Monday
Another test train is booked to do a run this week in the South West area, it should be a class 37 with stock and a DBSO. Dates and timings are:
Departing Exeter New Yard on Tuesday 18th and arrives at Penzance on Wednesday 19th April
Departing Penzance on Wednesday evening and arrives at Exeter New Yard on Thursday 20th April
The down run is direct to Penzance and the return covers the Newquay and Looe branches with the latter going to Coombe, but only as far as No 1 Ground Frame not the station for anyone planning to see it on this branchline. Runs as STP, so it could change!
Regards, Karl (Friends of Penmere Station). Many thanks Karl.
If anybody is out to see it on the Newquay or Looe branches to see this working, staff, or otherwise I'd be delighted to receive pictures.
