 The Limited (Past Time Rail)
Saturday 21st October

Is there a better way of viewing the diversity of England's
countryside than from the carriage window as we are steam hauled to
Penzance by ex GWR King 4-6-0 No. 6024 `King Edward 1'. The feel of
the early 1960's will be enhanced as we use the magnificently
restored diesel hydraulic No. D1015 `Western Champion' in maroon
livery on the non-steam sections of the days journey.

Leaving London Paddington early in the morning we speed our way
westwards behind 'Western Champion'. Calls will be made to pick
other passengers up en-route. On arrival at Taunton we welcome the
King to the front of the train.

On arrival at Penzance following a short break we bid farewell
to `King Edward 1' and return to London, setting down as outward,
with `Western Champion' at the head of our train.

Western is too early and too late for me, but I'll see the duff.
Any idea what time the duff will be arrving at Paddington from (I assume) OOC, in order for it to depart at 07.13? :)
