Those that attended the Gala last weekend witnessed an exceptional 3 days of steam action with the final count of 3 visiting locomotives in the shape of B1 4-6-0 61264, ‘Crab’ 2-6-0 13065 and our own Black 5 4-6-0 45212. Sadly the forth engine, Black 5 45407 did not pass its mainline test run in time to make it for the event.
45212 has departed the Railway back to Bury via our mainline connection and 13065 has left us for the same destination by road. However we are delighted that the B1 is still with us and will be at the head of the steam services this weekend before returning to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway next week, giving everyone another chance to once again ride behind and photograph this superb locomotive.
The diesel passenger service will once again be with the trusty diesel railbus, M79964.
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.
