    Bahamas does it all again 16 February 2019

    A week after its inaugural run, Bahamas repeated the excursion from Oxenhope to Carlisle for those who missed getting a seat on the first train. Not travelling this time, I went to Hellifield to watch its arrival and watering, then went up the road to see her storm past towards Long Preston.

    The sun was brilliant but low and directional, which limited the scope of the photographs.

    After Bahamas had gone I went to Settle station and found it in perfect order - a credit to all concerned.

    12 photos from Hellifield and six from Settle station are at https://pjhtransportpix.zenfolio.com/p76916012

    Must have miscounted. But either way, nothing to write home about. In any case, the main purpose of the exercise from my perspective was the KWVR's connection with Network Rail with steam haulage at a reasonable price.

    Bahamas is not really being worked at all on that Ais Gill climb. My guess is that for some reason the Class 37 was told to push. No consolation for those on board but my guess is that all was not as it should have been on the footplate. Who knows but it only needs the fire to get out of sorts at Appleby for that to happen.

    Bahamas approaches Selside this morning. I think I must have been stood next to PamW!

    No problems with the fire the engine blew its nuts off on the way up at least once.
