We are now into the 3rd week of the mid-week diesel railcar service with 6 round trips starting at 10.00. The service will be operated by the Class 101 diesel multiple unit which will also will be on the Saturday and Sunday diesel services.
Ian Riley's LMS 'Black 5' 4-6-0 44871 duly arrived on Friday and took up its duties on Saturday and Sunday, so giving the home fleet a well earned rest and providing not a small amount of excitement amongst the railway enthusiast community. The photographs below show the locomotive having arrived at Keighley and then in poor conditions on Saturday but sunshine on Sunday operating the steam service over 2 very popular days with the travelling public.
The visitor will once again head all steam services over this coming weekend

Whilst every effort will be 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.
