Locomotive Roster for weekdays commencing 26th June and weekend 1st & 2nd July 2017

MR 4F 0-6-0 43924 will have the honours hauling the weekday and weekend services between Oxenhope to Keighley. On Sunday 43924 will be joined by LNWR 0-6-2T ‘Coal tank’ 1054 with the second of our Sunday Vintage trains comprising a set of our more venerable coaches with four from the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust and the Metropolitan brake from the Vintage Carriages Trust.

The Saturday diesel turn will have our Class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit running the services with the first train leaving Oxenhope at 09.00 on Saturday.

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.

This weekend sees the return of the Model Railway Exhibition with the main event at Oxenhope and additional attractions at Ingrow.

In similar circumstances to the NEC, we will have on display the partially restored Ivatt 41241 in order to0 raise the Appeal’s profile as we look to raise at least a further £35,000 towards the restoration costs.

These latest images taken by James Horrell, one of the Ivatt team, shows 41241 on its way to Oxenhope, so come along and see how the work that the team have achieved to date.

Model Railway Exhibition 1st & 2nd July 2017

Following the success of last year’s model railway exhibition at Ingrow, 2017 sees the railway will holding the 2017 Model Railway Exhibition at Oxenhope where, with the rolling stock removed, the expanse of Oxenhope Exhibition Shed allows us to stage a larger exhibition. In addition there will be demonstrations at Ingrow West Station.
The event takes place on Saturday 1st and Sunday the 2nd July from 10.00 to 16.30 and entrance is free for those holding a Day Rover ticket.

A perfect day out for all the family.

Ivatt 41241 Appeal

At Oxenhope visitors will have the opportunity to see under restoration Ivatt tank 41241 which is being prepared to haul the 50th anniversary train in June 2018 just as it did back in 1968 when the Railway re-opened.

Over the wheel drop and looking somewhat ‘Tango-ed’ in the sun on the 17th June, the sidetanks are back on and are seen in undercoat ready to receive further applications ready for the event.
