(3) Robert Frise comments: Due to a derailment at Oxenhope on the K&WVR, services were terminated at Haworth, coaching stock being trapped in Oxenhope Yard. Fortunately the stock used for the evening train from Keighley to Ribblehead & Blea Moor (due to depart at 18.35) was available. A connecting bus service was laid on between Howarth & Oxenhope. 61994 'The Great Marquess' & support coach 35486 arrived just before departure from Keighley & posed for photographs. Connecting trains available on KWVR for railtour passengers use were;
90733+4973+5035+99328+99304+4994+45212 (top & tailed)
1210 'Sir Berkley'+1704+43345+509+465
