Bahamas' first mainline railtour following overhaul. Delayed departure from Keighley due to a tree fowling the overhead wires on the down line near Keighley. Time was fully regained on arrival at Carlisle. Headboard changed at Appleby on the return. 45212 hauled the final part of the tour with KWVR stock between Keighley and Oxenhope, running tender first.
