With only one week to go before the world's most famous locomotive arrives on the Railway we are delighted to announce all the latest information about our Charter from Oxenhope to Carlisle and the weekend of its display at Ingrow on the 1st & 2nd April with tickets still available for the "Flying Scotsman Experience".
It is Mother's day this Sunday when the railway will be running two steam services on Sunday. The main steam service will be hauled by 5820 on both days with 43924 at the head of the Pullman set on Sunday.
It's back to the home fleet to provide the motive power this weekend with 5820 hauling the steam service up the Valley.
The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway has a new department to manage all the infrastructure on the Worth Valley Railway and we are looking to recruit a tradespeople team of volunteers for the maintenance of our buildings, mainly stations, and our signals and telegraph infrastructure.
Having taken part in last weekend's Gala, 61264 remains on the Railway and will head steam services this weekend before returning home to the NYMR.
During the visit of 'Flying Scotsman' our regular volunteers will be working flat out to run the trains and man the stations, buffets and shops so we are looking to recruit extra volunteers to help run the 'pop-up' sales stands around the Railway.
The scene is set for another superb KWVR Gala with both guest locomotives, 61264 and 13065, now on the branch and ready to play their part. The home fleet is being prepared and we may well still see 45407 and 45212 at some time over the weekend.
13065 has arrived in good time from the East Lancashire Railway and 61264 is due to arrive via our mainline connection next week. 45407 and 45212, however, may not now be attending due to circumstances beyond our control.
75078 is in harness all week and into the weekend with the diesel railbus providing the diesel service on Tuesday and Wednesday as well as the weekend.
