Regular readers will already know that our Ivatt class 2 tank locomotive 41241 is currently out of service whilst undergoing a major overhaul. The railway is however anxious to have the locomotive ready for service again by early 2018 in order that it might be available to head our Anniversary Special train later that year marking fifty years since it performed a similar task at the head of the preserved line’s reopening train.
The Sponsor-a-boiler-tube Appeal and the Sponsorship Packages have been very successful and have raised over £60,000 towards restoring Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 back into traffic in time for the 2018 celebrations of 50 years since the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway re-opened in the preservation era.
However we still have some way to go and we are delighted to introduce a range of casualwear in support of the appeal.
