2019 Mazey Day Cornishman

Jun 29 , 2019 - Sat - 12:15 pm
Join our merry train for the Pathfinder Railtours annual visit to the Mazey Day celebrations in Penzance
A Sunday excursion to Cornwall hauled by No. 60163  'Tornado' including several stops to admire the steam loco whilst it takes on water. A choice of off train options


The Cornish celebration of Midsummer, known locally as Golowan, dates back to 1754, but was only re-established in 1991. We head off for the festivities hauled by Deltic D9009 ‘Alycidon’ on an absorbing journey close to the longest day of the year; with the whole trip in daylight almost from start to finish.  Fast running west of Bristol, through the counties of Somerset and Devon, takes us to Plymouth and the crossing of the Tamar into Cornwall. Your destination choices are:-

Option A: Truro (1225/1645)

Option B: St Erth (1250/1620) for the branchline to St Ives (you can pay the fare locally on the day)

Option C: Penzance (1300/1610) for the Mazey Day celebrations and festivities, or perhaps take a local bus to visit nearby Marazion for St Michael’s Mount, Mousehole, Newlyn or Land’s End
