With the forecast of icy winds coming down from the Arctic with the coldest weekend since April anticipated, we know that Winter, and therefore Santa Steam Specials, are only just around the corner. As well as weekend running, some schools are on holiday next week, so once again we are offering steam hauled services Tuesday – Thursday
The Class 101 diesel multiple unit will start the ball rolling at 09.00 on Saturday and the weekend’s steam service starts from Oxenhope at 11.00 with a 6 coach train hauled by BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078. 75078 and our Class 101 diesel multiple unit will continue with the two train service on Sunday.
The weekday service starts at 10.00 on Tuesday with Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 operating 4 round trips with 4 coaches including the real ale buffet car.
Work on raising the north end of Haworth platform to the same height as the rest was completed in time for the Beer & Music Festival, so passengers will now be able to alight from trains without facing the large drop to the platform that has existed for far too many years.
Whilst every effort will made to ensure that the advised motive power and coaching stock are available, the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway reserve the right to change this when operational circumstances so dictate.
