One month ago, we published Part 1 of this photographic record of 50 years of Santa Steam Specials. Now, as the 2016 season draws to a close, we celebrate the second 25 years of the day that Santa's train rumbled out of Haworth Yard hauled by a J72 class 0-6-0T 69023 'Joem'.
Our membership and the general public have sent us their photographic record of those 50 years, without them this would have been a scant offering, thank you. Below is a sample from the second 25 years which brings the total number of images of those 50 years to over 240 photographs. So just follow this link to see Santa Steam Specials - Part 2, 1991 - 2015.
As with the first 25 years, some years are covered well and others with just a solitary image. If you have photographs to contribute to this wonderful record of the Railway's achievements, send them to email@example.com .
