Listed below are the locomotives or diesel units rostered for the next weeks services.
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.

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.
Three weekends of Santa Steam Specials and Father Christmas and our volunteers are still going strong. The steam locomotives attached at the Oxenhope end of the train this weekend will be 44871 on Saturday and 43924 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.

The last Santa Steam Special operates on Christmas Eve behind 75078 and then, with a break on Christmas Day, it's steam every day with the Mince Pie Specials using 75078 and 5820
Two steam and two diesel locomotives plus a diesel railcar will be in operation this weekend for the last of the Santa Steam Special weekends.
