(1) Train journeyed down to Penzance overnight. Ticket was also valid as a day rover between Penzance & Plymouth (plus, Pip Dunn believes, the Cornish Branches). The tour of the branches was an extra to the main railtour. Train was only advertised for a class 50 on the return leg, 50026 on the outward coming off 1M61.
(2) 37185 on rear.
(3) 37207 on rear.
