This weekend BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078 will head steam services on Saturday having put in sterling effort throughout the week.
However, the locomotive retires at the end of the day to be replaced by USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 for the last round trip of the day and then heading the evening’s Haworth Haddock dining train. 5820 then continues on Sunday and will haul 6 coach trains throughout the week.
On Sunday there will be an rare appearance on a service train of the National Trust’s LNWR 0-6-2T ‘Coal Tank’ 1054, courtesy of the Bahamas Locomotive Society at Ingrow, hauling a 3 suburban set of coaches plus the NER ‘Old Gentleman’s Saloon’ which has been hired for a private party.
The diesel services on Saturday will be handled by our Class 101 diesel multiple unit.
On Saturday the first train departs Oxenhope (diesel railcar) at 09.00 with steam locomotive hauled trains operating from 11.00 and on Sunday, the first passenger service is steam hauled at 10.15.
In addition the vintage tour bus will be in operation every day.
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.
