Locomotive Roster Weekend 30th September & 1st October 2017 Update

Ian Riley’s LMS Class 5MT (‘Black 5’) 4-6-0 44871 will be arriving on the Railway this week and subject to a fitness-to-run examination will take the place of 43924 at the head of steam services this weekend.

There is a potential change to the locomotive roster for this weekend. As part of the agreement to overhaul 'Black 5' 45212, the KWVR has call on the locomotive for a set number of months each year or an alternative locomotive if 45212 is unavailable. Accordingly 'Black 5' 44871 will be arriving this week to honour that agreement.

Ian Riley's own 'Black 5' no. 44871 will arrive with us in time for the weekend and it' is planned (subject to the usual availability) that the engine will be used on the steam services this weekend in place of 43924.

On Saturday, Class 20, 20 031, will haul the final Diesel & Ale Day service of the year on Saturday and the Class 101 diesel multiple unit will operate the diesel service on Sunday.
