Locomotive Roster for the Weekend 9th & 10th December 2017

Father Christmas has certainly been busy and so have our volunteers. The steam locomotives attached at the Oxenhope end of the train this weekend will be 5820 on Saturday and 90733 on Sunday and the diesel power at the north end will once again be 25 059. Our class 101 diesel multiple unit will be providing an additional journey to Santa ticket holders and a pay on the day passenger service for our other visitors.

This weekend, once again, we 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. For the last 2 weekends 90733 and 44871 have taken the steam duties but this weekend we have one change. On Saturday steam motive power will be provided by USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 and on Sunday WD 2-8-0 90733 will once again have the honour of powering Santa up the Worth Valley. Diesel power will be in the capable hands of Class 25, 25 059 on both days.

Pre-booked Santa Steam Specials take centre stage once again this weekend but for visitors without a Santa Steam Special ticket wishing to travel along the Worth Valley a diesel railcar service operates throughout the day, starting at 09.00, giving passengers a new perspective through the forward facing windows on our diesel railcars. This service is free to Santa Steam Special ticket holders.

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.
