The Return of the Diesels!
Many visitors won’t remember steam traction, so the Diesel Gala brings back memories of these heritage machines that worked right from the end of steam up until recent memory – and in some cases, continue to do so!
The event will take place from Thursday 20th to Sunday 23rd June.
The Gala Committee is currently confirming guest locomotives, and they will be listed once confirmed.
Across the Gala weekend, you will encounter the excitement and nostalgia of the Locomotive works, with its exclusive sounds and smells; get up close to our fleet of Steam and Diesel locomotives with knowledgeable commentary from your experienced guide.
The tour involves walking on uneven and slippery surfaces and includes steps. For this reason, it is not suitable for those with mobility problems. Regretfully open-toed shoes are not permitted. Access to the sheds is only permitted for authorised groups who must always remain together.
Please be aware that this is both a hazardous and a working environment; children under 16, therefore, MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult. Due to yard restrictions and operating requirements, tours may have to be curtailed or cancelled without notice.
Haworth Shed Tours will begin shortly after the arrival of services from Keighley, meeting inside at the Booking Hall, Haworth.
Locomotive allocations & working timetables, a booklet will be available on the day when collecting your tickets.
No need to print before!
