Steam & Diesel Locomotive Roster for Weekend 11th & 12th April 2015

This weekend sees the first diesel railbus turns taken over by locomotive hauled passenger stock, in response to requests from diesel enthusiasts for more diesel locomotive haulage.

From the first service in the morning at 09.00 to the last diesel service of the day on Saturday, motive power will be provided by English Electric Class 37 37 075. This means that there is a full 2 train service in operation.

Sunday sees Class 101 DMU on the diesel turn until the 13.15 from Oxenhope when 0-6-0 D0226 (seen here on Tour de France Sunday, 2014) has a rare outing on passenger duty for the rest of the day.

D0226-140706-II

On the steam service, WD 2-8-0 90733 will be in operation for both days.

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.

  1. Both trains seemed to be reasonably busy so I hope this experiment will be the start of more regular two train operation on Saturdays
