Locomotive Roster for the weekend Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September 2019

Annually, in September, we have a week devoted to repairing our track and civil infrastructure. Occasionally we need to extend this if the repair job is too big to complete in a week! This September is one of those occasions, as we need three weeks to complete work to eradicate the landslips that threaten the area around ‘Ebor Lane Bridge’ near Haworth (the bridge made famous at the end of The Railway Children film).

With the line severed north of Haworth Station, accordingly we will be operating a revised but varied timetable:

  • Steam shuttle: Oxenhope – Haworth. British Railways Class 2MT 2-6-0 78022 (south end) and British Railways Diesel Mechanical 0-6-0 No. D2511 (north end)
  • Vintage Bus Service: Haworth – Ingrow
  • Diesel Railcar Service: Keighley – Oakworth. Class 101 diesel multiple unit

Oxenhope Buffet Opening Hours

With the change of the times of the first train from Oxenhope, the Buffet opening times have been changed. The Buffet will open 30 minutes before the first train departs Oxenhope, ie 09.45

Advance Notice

As advised in previous notices the News Editor is heading south for an extended break and a well earned (at least he thinks so) holiday of a lifetime. This will be the last notice for a while with normal service being resumed for the weekend of the 23rd & 24th March.

Fear not, however!

The weekly roster will be posted on the Home section of the website, so please look on the website for an update. Our marketing team are a busy lot with not enough hours in their day, but will hope to post the roster by the Thursday evening prior to the weekend.

Locomotive Roster for the weekend 12th & 13th January 2019

With the reduced number of passengers on our winter services our steam hauled services consist of 4 coaches, sufficient for Class 2 motive power, which this weekend will be BR Class 2MT 2-6-0 78022 with 5 round trips on Saturday, Green timetable, and 4 on Sunday to the Blue timetable.

Visitors should note that we are now operating to a revised Green timetable with the first Saturday diesel railcar service of the day departing from Haworth at 09.00 and not Oxenhope as in previous years. The diesel service will be operated on both days by our Class 101 diesel multiple unit.

Oxenhope Buffet Opening Hours

Advance Notice

As Winter bites and the News Editor advances in years, like our Summer birds, he is heading south for an extended break and a well earned (at least he thinks so) holiday of a lifetime. Unfortunately a replacement editor has not been trained up yet, so, reluctantly, you will not receive a locomotive roster update each week to your in-box. The last update will be for the weekend of the 26th & 27th January with normal service being resumed for the weekend of the 23rd & 24th March.

Fear not, however!

Locomotive Roster for the weekend 5th & 6th January 2019

As we start a new year, we must first apologise for the lack of information regarding the locomotives in operation from the 28th December to the 1st January. Sadly our normally reliable jungle drums did not come up with their usual flow of information. Rumours that the drummer had had too much sherry over the Christmas period are totally unfounded, although this weekend’s drumbeat has come a little late.

With the failure of the rostered locomotive, MR 0-6-0 4F 43924, we have had a combination of motive power with 78022, 41241 and diesel 20 031 all rallying to the call, and on New Year’s Day we had the wonderful double headed combination of BR Standard Class 2 2-6-0 78022 and BR ‘Ivatt’ 2MT 2-6-2T 41241 (illustrated above and below) – a stirring sight of 2 locomotives that returned to service in 2018 bringing in the New Year. With the number of passenger we carry on our Mince Pie Specials, we need to run 6 coaches and with 78022 and 41241, the only alternative engines available, limited to 5 coaches, extra power is required if either of these locomotives were to be used. 20 031 assisted on the 31st December and the two Class 2 locomotives combined on 1st January in perfect Winter conditions as you can see below.

With the reduced number of passengers on our winter services, this weekend’s motive power will be BR ‘Ivatt’ Class 2MT 2-6-2T 41241 hauling 4 coaches with 5 round trips on Saturday, Green timetable, and 4 on Sunday to the Blue timetable.

Visitors should note that we are now operating to a revised Green timetable with the first Saturday diesel railcar service of the day departing from Haworth at 09.00 and not Oxenhope as in previous years. The diesel service will be operated on both days by our Class 101 diesel multiple unit.

Locomotive Roster for the 22nd – 28th December 2018

And so we come to the end of our Santa Steam Specials this weekend and despite some atrocious weather conditions, especially last Saturday, our volunteers have, once again, delivered a memorable visit for our passengers producing lots and lots of happy faces. As this is being written, the BBC Weather App is predicting more rain for the last 3 days of Santa Steam Specials but, in theory at least, the sun will be poking its nose out at various times.

This weekend’s combination of steam locomotives will be the same as last weekend’s. On Saturday and Sunday MR 4F 0-6-0 43924 will take our festive visitors south from Keighley and on Christmas Eve, BR Standard Class 2 2-6-0 78022 will have the honours of bringing the 2018 season of Santa Steam Specials to a close.  Both locomotives will be in steam on all 3 days, with the non-operation locomotive, on standby in Haworth Yard.

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. This service is free of charge to Santa Special ticket holders.

Our volunteers only get one day’s respite before the Railway re-opens on Boxing Day with a week of Mince Pie Specials headed by MR 4F 0-6-0 43924.

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.
