Locomotive Roster for the Weekend 17th & 18th December 2016

The 4th weekend of our Santa Steam Specials will see 90733 at the head on the climb up the Valley and diesel 25 059 and the Keighley end. It is our annual Carol Service Train on Saturday evening when 90733 will once again be at its head.

This weekend is week 4 of Santa Steam Specials and the weather, in the main, appears to be holding out so relatively kind to our passengers compared to the last few years. Just a nice sprinkling of snow and a bright sunny day would really set the scene.

Last weekend saw both USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 and WD 2-8-0 90733 on the south, Oxenhope end of the train assisted, once again, by Class 25 diesel 25 059 at the Keighley end. 90733 will be providing the steam traction on both days this weekend with the class 25 continuing at the north, Keighley, end. 90733 will continue on the evening Carol Service Train, for which just a few seats remain. (Previously announced double heading with 43924 on the Carol Service train, 90733 will now carry out this duty alone.)


The Santa Steam Specials are sold out but the diesel service operates all day on both days and is free to those holding Santa Special tickets and is pay on the day to other passengers. Again the service will be in the hands of our class 101 diesel multiple unit.

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.
