Locomotive Roster for Weekend 2nd & 3rd July and all next week to Friday 8th July 2016

After the withdrawal from service of BR Class 4MT 4-6-0 75078 at the weekend, the weekday service has been in the hands of MR 4F 0-6-0 43924.

However, it is anticipated that repairs will be completed in time for 75078 to resume duties on 1st July and will be the main steam locomotive Saturday and Sunday and throughout the week.

Sunday sees the third of our ‘Vintage Train’ days when TVR 0-6-2T no. 85 will head the ‘main’ Vintage Set which will be formed of four coaches, comprising coaches from the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust and Vintage Carriages Trust:
Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Club Car, no. 47
Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway 6-wheel 3rd Class coach, no. 1507
Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Brake 3rd, no. 1474
Metropolitan Railway Brake 3rd, no. 427


The ‘shuttle’ Vintage Set hauled by LNWR 0-6-2T ‘Coal Tank’ will once again consist of two carriages from the Vintage Carriages Trust fleet:
Great Northern Railway 6-wheel Brake, no. 589
Southern Railway ‘Chatham’ Brake, no. 3554


The normal early morning diesel railbus is rested on Saturday and English Electric Class 20 no. 20 031 will take the service set on the morning diesel run before handing over to 75078. The Class 101 DMU will operate the Sunday morning diesel service.

Whilst every effort will made to ensure that the advised motive power and coaching stock are available, the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway reserve the right to change this when operational circumstances so dictate.
