Ex-Huddersfield Tower Wagon A9 brought Bradford 844 to Sandtoft from Keighley Bus Museum on the 19th May 2001 to stay for the summer on an exchange scheme with 619.

Here, A9 has been coupled to 619 in readiness for the trip back to Keighley. This passed uneventfully, except for a broken bracket on the axle clamp which had to be fixed in transit.

Our research has so far not revealed when these two vehicles were last in contact, but it is likely that it is over 35 years ago, as we cannot recall 619 being towed into depot after a failure, so if at all it would have been when there was a problem with the overhead, or serious roadworks, when the derricks were called into play to tow trolleys past the obstruction.
