Locomotive Roster for the Weekend 8th & 9th December 2018

The first Santa Steam Specials ran to capacity last weekend albeit in poor weather conditions but there were lots of smiling faces nonetheless. Hopefully this weekend will be a little better although some rain (hopefully not s much) is forecast

Throughout the Santa season, trains will have a combination of locomotives, with steam locomotives operating on the south, Oxenhope end of the train, assisted by one of our mainline diesel locomotives at the Keighley end. Steam motive power for the Santa Steam Specials will be provided by 2 locomotives, BR Class 2 2-6-0 78022 on Saturday (its 2nd day in passenger service after overhaul) and BR Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241, that hauled trains throughout last weekend, on Sunday.  This weekend the diesel locomotive will be Class 20, 20 031 on both days.

For visitors without a Santa Steam Special ticket wishing to travel along the Worth Valley, a diesel railcar service operates throughout the day by our Class 101 diesel multiple unit, starting at 09.00, giving passengers a new perspective through the forward facing windows on our diesel railcars.

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.

Locomotive Roster for Weekend 27th & 28th October and midweek service, 30th & 31st October and 1st November 2018

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 weekend timetables are the Green timetable on Saturday and the Winter Blue timetable on Sunday. Our midweek steam service which will operate to the Pink timetable.

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.

 

Locomotive Roster for Weekend 6th & 7th October and midweek railcar service

You know that Autumn is upon us and the Beer & Music Festival isn’t far away when the Blue Sunday timetable changes from two steam locomotives to one steam locomotive and a diesel railcar operating the second service.

The weekend timetables are the Green timetable on Saturday and the Winter Blue timetable on Sunday. Our midweek diesel railcar service which will operate to the Yellow timetable every Wednesday until 17th October.

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 4 coach train hauled by Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241. Also making an appearance on Saturday will be USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 which will haul the last of the year’s Haworth Haddocks, this train requiring more pulling power than the Ivatt can provide. The Class 101 diesel multiple unit will continue on Sunday and will also operate the 6 round trips on Wednesday.

Work continues at the north end of Haworth platform to raise it up to the same height as the rest, therefore approximately 180ft of platform will once again out of bounds to visitors and permit holders wishing to access the trackside, from Haworth Station. This restriction will continue until all reconstruction work has been completed.

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.

Locomotive Roster for Weekend 1st & 2nd September and weekdays to 7th September 2018

It seems like only a few weeks ago that we were advising everyone of the locomotives for the first weekend of the Summer timetable with daily running and the vintage Haworth – Oxenhope tour bus, and here we are now giving details of the last weekend when the tour bus runs and the last week of steam hauled weekday trains. This summer has not been without its challenges with steam struggling to hold its place at the head of our trains with the searing sun’s rays scorching the lineside grasses and making grass fires a real risk. Thankfully the KWVR faired better than many similar lines and we were able to run most of our trains steam hauled.

For this final week of all week running we will have 4 steam locomotives in operation. The weekend steam service starts with BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078, continuing on from this weeks weekday service. 75078 will haul 4 of the day’s services before handing over to USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 that will be at the head of the last Oxenhope – Keighley – Oxenhope service and, also, that evening’s Haworth Haddock.

5820 continues on Sunday and will be joined by LNWR 0-6-2T ‘Coal tank’ 1054, courtesy of the Bahamas Locomotive Society at Ingrow,  hauling 3 suburban coaches, making an interesting contrast to the corridor coaches behind 5820.

The diesel services on Saturday will be handled by our Class 101 diesel multiple unit.

5820 and 1054 retire on Sunday evening to be replaced by the Railway’s iconic red Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 hauling 3 BR mark 1 corridor coaches for the last week of every day steam trains.

On Saturday the first train departs Oxenhope (diesel railcar) at 09.00 with steam locomotive trains operating from 11.00 and on Sunday, the first passenger service is steam hauled at 10.15. Weekday services start at 10.00.

In addition the vintage tour bus will be in operation every day.

Timetables:
Saturday- Green
Sunday – Blue
Weekend – Bus Timetable
Weekday – Pink

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.

Advance notice: Due to the start of our annual Civil Week, the Green timetable will be in operation on both Saturday and Sunday, 8th & 9th September.

Locomotive Roster for Weekend 25th & 26th August, Bank Holiday and weekdays to 31st August 2018

This weekend, we have ‘Big Jim’, USATC S160 2-8-0 5820,  at the head of steam services on all three days of the Bank Holiday Weekend.

On Sunday and Monday 5820 and will be joined by Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 hauling the suburban set of coaches.

The diesel service this Saturday will be locomotive hauled with our monthly Diesel & Ale train running throughout Saturday alongside our steam hauled service. This Saturday’s Steam & Ale Train is scheduled to be hauled by Class 25, 25 059. There will be a real ale bar on both the diesel and steam services

On Saturday (Green Diesel & Ale Timetable) the first train departs Oxenhope (diesel) at 09.00 with steam locomotive trains operating from 11.00 and on Sunday and Monday (Blue Timetable), the first passenger service is steam hauled at 10.15. On Saturday & Sunday the Vintage Tour Bus will be giving Haworth – Oxenhope bus tours around the Valley, free to holders of Rover tickets, and will operate to a specific Bus Timetable.

For the last week of the Summer timetable, the Orange Timetable operates (Tuesday – Friday) with the first service leaving Oxenhope at 10.00 The Orange Timetable includes the Haworth – Oxenhope tour bus which, on dry days, will be provided by an open top double decker for unrivalled views of the local countryside. Tuesday to Friday passenger services will be hauled by BR, Class 4MT 4-6-0 75078

This weekend BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078 will head steam services on both days and will continue throughout the week, completing a 7 day operating stint.

On Sunday there will be an interesting pairing harking back to the last steam hauled services on the branch in BR days. In addition to 75078 on the main service train, it will be joined by Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 hauling just 3 coaches reminiscent of services in 1950s as depicted here of classmate 41273 on a Keighley – Oxenhope push-pull train standing at Oxenhope ready to return northwards. In 2018 however the ex-LMS coaches will be replaced by 3 suburban coaches, making an interesting contrast to the corridor coaches behind 75078

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 trains operating from 11.00 and on Sunday, the first passenger service is steam hauled at 10.15.

Locomotive Roster for Weekend 28th & 29th July and weekdays to 3rd August 2018

These last few weeks have emphasised the difficulty of advising, in advance, the locomotives to be rostered for our services, and never has the disclaimer at the foot of these notifications been more appropriate.

The fire risk continues and our trackside is still tinder dry, resulting in the Railway, reluctantly, replacing Thursday’s steam locomotive with one of our diesels but, as yet, there is no blanket steam ban on the KWVR and steam passenger services continue whenever possible.

This weekend, with the usual disclaimer, will have ‘Big Jim’, USATC S160 2-8-0 5820,  at the head of steam services on both days and will continue with the weekday service.

On Sunday 5820 and will be joined by Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 on our Sunday Vintage Train service. However conditions were favourable last weekend for the preferred locomotive, LNWR ‘Coal Tank’ 0-6-2T 1054 to head the Vintage Train. These are tricky times and we ask for understanding if the advertised locomotive is substituted.

The diesel service this Saturday will be locomotive hauled with our monthly Diesel & Ale train running throughout Saturday alongside our steam hauled service. This will be hauled by Class 37, 37 075.

On Saturday (Green Diesel & Ale Timetable) the first train departs Oxenhope (diesel) at 09.00 with steam locomotive trains operating from 11.00 and on Sunday (Blue Vintage Train Timetable), the first passenger service is steam hauled at 10.15.

Throughout the week the Orange Timetable operates (Monday – Friday) with the first service leaving Oxenhope at 10.00 The Orange Timetable includes the Haworth – Oxenhope tour bus which, on dry days, will be provided by an open top double decker for unrivalled views of the local countryside.

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.

 

Locomotive Roster for Weekend 21st & 22nd July and weekdays to 27th July 2018

Firstly, an apology for the non-appearance of the roster for last weekend and the current week. Due to the ongoing fire risk plus outstanding repairs it was not possible to post the roster in advance.

Despite rain in the last week the fire risk continues and our trackside is still tinder dry but, unlike the ‘big’ railway, there is no steam ban on the KWVR and steam passenger services continue.

This weekend BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078 will head steam services on both days and footplate crews being urged to drive steam locomotives sympathetically to the conditions. With a 6 coach train on Saturday and with conditions in mind these trains will be “banked” by English Electric 0-6-0 diesel D0226 ‘Vulcan’.

On Sunday 75078 continues alone on a 5 coach formation and will be joined by Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 on the our Sunday Vintage Train service. Conditions are still too dry to roster LNWR 0-6-2T 1054 which is less powerful than the Ivatt.

The diesel services on Saturday will be handled by our Class 101 diesel multiple unit.

On Saturday (Green Timetable) the first train departs Oxenhope (diesel railcar) at 09.00 with steam locomotive trains operating from 11.00 and on Sunday (Blue Vintage Train Timetable), the first passenger service is steam hauled at 10.15.

This week sees the introduction of the Orange Timetable (Monday – Friday) with the first service leaving Oxenhope at 10.00 hauled by BR ‘Ivatt Tank’ 2-6-2T 41241, resplendent in  its KWVR / LMS crimson lake re-opening livery, and this locomotive will continue throughout the week. The Orange Timetable hails the introduction of the Haworth – Oxenhope tour bus which, on dry days will be provided by an open top double decker for unrivalled views of the local countryside.

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.

 

Locomotive Roster for Weekend 7th & 8th July and weekdays to 13th July 2018

With the hot weather continuing and our trackside tinder dry, it has been a challenging week for the Railway, but, there is no steam ban on the KWVR and steam passenger services continue, but this weekend with a little help from the rear.

This weekend BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 75078 will head steam services on both days as footplate crews are urged to drive steam locomotives sympathetically to the conditions. With this in mind these trains will be “banked” by BR Class 20 diesel 20 031.

This pairing continues on Sunday when we will also have the second of our vintage Sundays which this weekend will be headed by MR 4F 0-6-0 43924.

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 trains operating from 11.00 and on Sunday, the first passenger service is steam hauled at 10.15.

Weekday has the Pink timetable in use with the first service leaving Oxenhope at 10.00 and after a successful return at our 50th Anniversary Gala these services will be hauled by BR ‘Ivatt Tank’ 2-6-2T 41241, resplendent in  its KWVR / LMS crimson lake re-opening livery, the first time the ‘Ivatt’ has operated a service train since restoration.

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.

 

 

Ivatt Restoration Update

The Society’s in-house magazine Push & Pull publishes an update on the restoration of Ivatt 2-6-2T 41241 every quarter. Since publication of the Winter 2016/17 edition, progress has continued apace with a view to completion in time for the Re-opening Anniversary celebrations in June  2018. Here Callum Porter and James Horrell of the Ivatt Team document and illustrate the continued restoration up to the end of January 2017. Continue reading

41241 – Ivatt Appeal Update

Regular Website readers will already know that our Ivatt class 2 tank locomotive 41241 is currently out of service whilst undergoing a major overhaul. The railway is however anxious to have the locomotive ready for service again by early 2018, in order that it might be available to head our Anniversary Special train later that year, marking fifty years since it performed a similar task at the head of the preserved line’s reopening train.

We launched our 50th Anniversary Return to Steam appeal for the lvatt 41241 tank locomotive just over a year ago and since then we have made significant progress towards raising the overall £200,000 sum which we need to see the locomotive returned to steam by June 20l8 in time to then haul our special anniversary train.

After the success of our first 2 appeals – Sponsor-a-boiler-tube Appeal and Sponsorship Packages we are now launching our third stage of the Appeal – Sponsor a Firebox Stay. To see how you can help raise the funds to get 41241 over the line, Read More >>>>

Ivatt 41241 Update

Callum Porter, a regular member of the Ivatt team, has sent in this report of the team’s activities over the last month or so.

The rear pony truck was disassembled a few months ago and in the intervening time every component has been stripped, checked and painted. The truck was then re-assembled by the team, finished off, painted and stored ready for fitting. On the 16th July the locomotive was jacked up and the rear truck placed under and lowered back down so returning it to its rightful place.

More recently work has turned towards cleaning up the bottom end of the loco (frames, wheels etc.) ready for painting. Once the bottom end painting is complete the tanks can be refitted which, hopefully will be end August / September.

Behind the scenes all the new and old bushes for the motion have been re-white metalled and are awaiting machining them to finish size before they can be pressed into the rods and re fitted.
Once the side tanks will go back, there is some work on the cab to be completed, tanks painting and applying some finishing touches on them both. A start has been made on the new motion brasses so, with a fair wind, the motion will be back together before November.

The result of all this work, it is hoped, is that by the end of Autumn, 41241 will have the side tanks on, motion re-assembled and in red undercoat. June 2018 gets ever closer.

There is a constant and substantial amount of work required to our locomotives to keep the trains running, and extra hands are always needed to complete the tasks. If you can spare time to help either the ‘Ivatt Team’ or work on other locomotive restorations and maintenance, please contact Operations Officer, Richard Jones on 01535 645214 or richard.jones@kwvr.co.uk

The Ivatt Restoration Appeal is still open for sponsorship packages and Ivatt merchandise, that supports the Appeal, is available from our ‘pop-up’ stalls on the Railway and by telephone to Haworth Station, 01535 645214. And don’t forget the annual Beer & Music Festival is this year dedicated to the Ivatt Appeal with all profits adding to the Appeal fund.
