The train crew of BR Standard 73129 stand aound looking at the cylinder block of the engine whist it stands at Oxenhope on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. With good reason, an hour or so later it failed and the locomotive had to be hauled back to Haworth shed for repair. It was running fine later in the afternoon.
73129 is the only surviving Britiash Rail Standard Class 5 with Caproti valve gear now running on preserved lines in the UK. It will move onto the East Lancashire Railway for their steam gala on the 25th/26th October.
