Loco Used 4472 'Flying Scotsman'

Route :

Loco Route
4472 London St Pancras - ??? - Leicester London Road - ??? - Keighley (1)
4472 Keighley - ??? - London Kings Cross

Notes :
(1) Buses were used to transfer passengers between Keighley and Haworth as the K&WVR did not receive their Light Railway Order until June 1968.
(2) Mike Taylor comments: 4472 Flying Scotsman went light engine from Keighley via Skipton and Colne to Accrington to turn on the triangle there. Thence to Rosegrove mpd where it went under the coal hopper for tender to be topped up before returning same route back to Keighley. The turntable at Rosegrove would not have been long enough to turn an A3.
