For the first weekend of the Santa service USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 was scheduled to head the service but 43924 deputised on Saturday, resulting in a Derby product at each end as Class 25 25 059 was on the north end for the run down to Keighley. However 5820 was at the head on Sunday.
The schedule for the rest of the weekends up to Christmas is
Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th December LMS Class 5MT 4-6-0 45305
Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th December SR West Country Pacific 34092 ‘Wells’
Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st December LMS Class 5MT 4-6-0 45305
Standby on all 4 weekends of Santa Specials is MR 4F 0-6-0 43924
Whilst every effort will made to ensure that the advised motive power is available, the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway reserve the right to change this when operational circumstances so dictate.
