Amendment to Locomotive Roster for the Weekend 17th & 18th December 2016

This weekend is week 4 of Santa Steam Specials and the weather, in the main, appears to be holding out so relatively kind to our passengers compared to the last few years. Just a nice sprinkling of snow and a bright sunny day would really set the scene.

90733 will be providing the steam traction on both days this weekend with the class 25 continuing at the north, Keighley, end and will be the motive power on the evening Carol Service Train, for which just a few seats remain.

90733-1612102-pli25-059-1612101-pli

The Santa Steam Specials are sold out but the diesel service operates all day on both days and is free to those holding Santa Special tickets and is pay on the day to other passengers. Again the service will be in the hands of our class 101 diesel multiple unit.

Locomotive Roster for the Weekend 3rd & 4th December 2016

The first Santa Steam Specials ran last weekend, and started with a cloudless blue sky, sunshine but, at times, a bitterly cold breeze, just what you would like to expect on a Santa weekend. Sunday almost reverted to type, but the sun managed a few rays throughout the day, although chilling rain hit the Valley late morning. Here are a few images from that first weekend courtesy of the photographers who made it out on the day.

Last weekend saw USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 on the south, Oxenhope end of the train assisted by Class 25 diesel 25 059 at the Keighley end. 5820 is in action again this weekend but the weekend starts with WD 2-8-0 90733 providing the steam traction on Saturday giving way to 5820 on Sunday. After its protracted overhaul the class 25 continues on diesel duty and made a welcome sight on its return to action.

The Santa Steam Specials are sold out but the diesel service operates all day on both days and is free to those holding Santa Special tickets and is pay on the day to other passengers. Again the service will be in the hands of our class 101 diesel multiple unit.
