Q15.15 Newquay - Wolverhampton Train 1966

I wonder whether anyone can help me with observations between Plymouth and Bristol on Saturday 6 August 1966. I was travelling on the 11.22am from Newquay to Wolverhampton Low Level but my notes have long gone. I only know that D31 took over The Cornishman at Temple Meads. It would appear that my train had lost some time as The Cornishman should have been at least a quarter of an hour behind us. Hopefully there were a few more people out and about on 6 August compared with the previous weekend when England won the World Cup! (Tony Higgs:21278)
