Locomotive Roster for the Weekend 23rd & Christmas Eve 2017

Weekends of Santa Steam Specials and Father Christmas travelling up and down the Valley will soon be over for another year as we approach the last weekend before Christmas and Santa leaves for the North Pole and his most important night of the year. It will be the same combination of steam locomotives as last weekend with 43924 on Saturday and 44871 on Sunday. 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.

Visiting LMS Class 5MT 44871 and MR 4F 0-6-0 43924 shared the Santa Steam Special duties at the weekend with diesel power provided by Class 25, 25 059. It will be the same again this weekend with 43924 on duty Saturday and 44871 taking Santa on his last trip up and down the Valley on Sunday.

Santa Steam Special ticket holders.wishing to take additional journeys can travel for free along the Worth Valley in the diesel railcar service which operates throughout the day. For those without a Santa ticket can travel on payment of the normal fare. This service starts 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.
