(1) Route & loco confirmation required. Some reports list the 25 working to Oxenhope rather than Keighley. Contemporary reports also talk about the train making two round trips (hauled by same steam locos?) which was all part of the K&WVR Autumn Enthusiasts Weekend. L89 carried a "Northern Belle" headboard. 47040 was used on a M.&G.N.J.R.S. tour immediately prior to its use on this tour, maybe this being used to trip the loco back northwards?
