50 years in the making, the re-opened Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is only 1 week away from being 50 years old. To celebrate this momentous occasion we have in store the most ambitious Gala ever held on the Railway when no less than EIGHTEEN different steam and diesel locomotives will operate passenger services over the Oxenhope branch from Keighley over the 8days from the 24th June to the 1st July
It is a mixture of locomotives in action over the weekend with the steam locomotives in the shape of 75078 and 45212, which arrives on Tuesday, and mainline diesel locomotive 50 035 'Ark Royal' which arrived on the KWVR this week.
