No sooner has Easter passed and another holiday period starts with a 3 day full 2 train service Saturday – Monday. The weekend starts with a modified Green timetable on Saturday with a full line all day mainline diesel hauled service commencing at 09.00. This service, the first of our mainline diesel hauled days, will be in the hands of BR English Electric Class 37 locomotive 37 075. At the head of the steam hauled passenger train will be WD 2-8-0 90733.
On Sunday the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race passes up the Valley and we are operating a special all steam timetable starting at 09.30, continuing throughout the day. 90733 will be joined by BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078 for the Sunday services and on Monday when the Blue timetable will operate.
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.
