On an Ultrasonic Test Train Penzance
Due to the unfortunate failure of D1015 'Western Champion', The Cornishman railtour on Monday 29th May will see A1 Pacific 60163 'Tornado' take over the raines from Paddington to Penzance, making this the first visit of an A1 to Cornwall! A much welcome change from the usual locomotives we always see down here, to cap it off, some compensation for diesel only fans has been awarded in that the return leg from Penzance is booked a class 59/2.
London Paddington to Penzance 60163
Exeter Riverside New Yard to Penzance assume 59/2 L/E
Penzance to London Paddington class 59/2
Penzance to Bodmin Parkway Sidings 60163 L/E
No return times are in the system yet.
Kind Regards, Karl (Friends of Penmere Station).
Many thanks indeed Karl
