Notes :
(1) Train originally booked to run on 23rd July 2005. Off-train options included were a visit to Bodmin & Wenford Railway during its Diesel Gala, a visit to The Eden Project, or to remain on-board for the journey through to Penzance.
(2) Late departure was due to late arrival of coaching stock, which had been 'locked' into Old Oak Common depot by an over-night possession.
