It has been a busy period for our volunteers over the last month or so, with hardly a respite since the 31st March and throughout April . So it is probably with some relief that we have the next two weekends of “normal” running with no special trains and the standard Green timetable on Saturday and Blue timetable on Sunday.
The mainstay of this weekend’s steam service will be WD 2-8-0 90733, the first steam service on Saturday departing Oxenhope at 11.00 for 5 round trips to Keighley. On Sunday 90733 will be joined on Sunday by BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078 with passenger services starting at 10.15
The Saturday diesel turn will have our Class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit running the service with the first train leaving Oxenhope at 09.00.
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.
Due to engineering works next week there will be no mid-week diesel railcar service on the 10th May.
