Keighley & Worth Valley Railway - No. 45596 - Bahamas
Author: Rattie

No. 45596 - Bahamas, in my humble opinion is one of the most handsome UK locomotives I have had to good fortune to photograph. Filmed on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway in early September in mixed weather, the loco has been restored to mainline condition by the Bahamas Locomotive Society.
 
Designed by William Stanier, the LMS chief mechanical engineer, the loco was built in Glasgow by the North British Locomotive Company in 1934. The Jubilee class loco was named Bahamas after islands in the Atlantic Ocean which then were part of the British Empire. Following the nationalisation of Britain's railway, in January 1948, it was renumbered 45596, the number that it carries today.

Four Jubilee class locomotives have survived into preservation.

Wow, b-e-a- utiful— have to make it across the big pond and see this in person, someday!
Saw the “Railway Children” movie years ago that featured this line, too — highly recommend it.
