A voyage from Paddington Station to Penzance and back loosely following the GWR line through the countryside that the Cornish Riviera Express once took.

Extensive route notes and a variety of files will be distributed to entrants via email a week or two before the event. In the mean time use the interactive map for an overview of what lies ahead (subject to change); toggle the elevation & grade on/off by clicking the key. *Please note plugin's 'grade' is experimental so take it with a pinch of salt, especially where rocky outcrops may be present.
If you time it right you can leave Paddington Monday-Saturday at 10:03 as the GWR train leaves carrying the Cornish Riviera Express badge, and return 3 days later (Mon-Sat) at 14:01 as the return badged train arrives; 75h58m, allowed time 76h27m. Perhaps you could bag a stamp on your brevet card from the conductor?
