‘Bahamas’ Railtour to Carlisle 9th February 2019

An event that that has been 25 years in the making, ‘Jubilee Class’ locomotive 45596 ‘Bahamas’ is returning to the mainline on Saturday 9th February when it will run from Oxenhope over the Settle & Carlisle Railway to Carlisle and return. Tickets available in Premier Dining.

As previously advertised, following the most exhaustive overhaul the locomotive has received in since 1961 and now resplendent in its Brunswick Green livery, LMS Stanier 'Jubilee Class' 4-6-0 no. 45596 ‘Bahamas’, is returning to the Worth Valley and, for the first time in 25 years and will run on the mainline with seats available for the general public!

Promoted by Keighley & Worth Valley Railway in partnership with Bahamas Locomotive Society, 'Bahamas' will run from Oxenhope to Carlisle and return on Saturday 9th February 2019. This will be a unique opportunity, the railtour being the first time that 'Bahamas' has completed a revenue earning run on the mainline since 1994!

If you missed out the first time round, due a small number cancellations by passengers, we have a few seats now available:
