The Railway has arranged a series of “extra” Enthusiast Events running over the forthcoming Winter Steam Spectacular:
Friday 7th March – Early Morning Photo Charter
On the morning of 7th March there will be a small photo charter utilising USA S160 “Big Jim” as 95820 on a short Goods working. This may be the only chance to get photos of the locomotive in its current fictitious BR guise before it’s repainted, working the type of train it was designed to operate.
Friday 7th March – Evening Night Photoshoot
On the evening of 7th there will be a night shoot at Keighley Station. It is planned to have two trains in the platforms (likely to be one passenger and one Goods) lit up for photographs to be taken, as well as posing locomotives next to the water tower for watering. The station will be closed to the general public.
Sunday 9th March – Early Morning Photo Charter
On the morning of 9th March (Sunday) we will run a small photo charter utilising visiting LNER K4 No. 61994 on a short Goods working.
There will be a small charge for each event but they will be limited to a maximum of 20 people on a first come, first served basis. For full details click here visit the main website.
