(1) Jim Howie comments: Only disappointment of the tour was that the rostered locomotives for haulage of the railtour stock over the KWVR were “Jinty” 0-6-0T No. 47279 and Br Std 2-6-0 No.78022, but the mogul had failed that morning and there was no available steam replacement. The train was therefore hauled up the valley with the interesting combination of 47279 leading ex BR class 25 diesel No D5209 and returned with 47279 working alone. All was not lost as the KWVR kindly allowed any railtour ticket holders a trip on a regular service hauled by Black 5 no. 5305.
