The Kernow Explorer, 23rd June 2012

Ian Knight has been allowed out to Cornwall for Mazey Day, travelling from Bristol Parkway on the Spitfire Railtours 'Kernow Explorer'. The planned tour from Eastleigh was cancelled for lack of rolling stock. Here are some of his pictures.
37516 + 37676 Loch Rannoch in an interlude at Plymouth.
The terminus at Penzance, with the Spitfire Tour in the platform on right.
Deltic 22 (55022) Royal Scots Grey arrives with Pathfinder's 'Mazey Day Cornishman' from Birmingham.
With 37676 leading, the Spitfire tour is ready to make its return. The wreath is for local enthusiast Ian Burgess of Fair Oak, who died in Austria last week, and was due to be on the tour.
