Visiting LMS Class 5MT 44871 deputised for WD 2-8-0 90733 on Sunday. With maintenance required on the Santa Steam Fleet, this weekend’s combination of locomotives should see visiting 44871 on the Saturday turn and on Sunday MR 4F 0-6-0 43924 will be making a rare Santa Steam Special appearance. Diesel power will be in the hands of either Class 25, 25 059 or Class 20, 20 031, depending on availability.
Pre-booked Santa Steam Specials take centre stage once again this weekend but for visitors without a Santa Steam Special ticket wishing to travel along the Worth Valley a diesel railcar service operates throughout the day, starting at 09.00, giving passengers a new perspective through the forward facing windows on our diesel railcars. This service is free to Santa Steam Special ticket holders.

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.
