Locomotive Roster for the weekend Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th January 2020

Our winter services continue and this weekend we welcome back our Welsh tank locomotive, 85 at the head of steam services once again with the diesel service in the hands of our diesel railbus M79964.

The motive power for the weekend 25th & 26th January will be as follows:

  • Saturday 25th January
    Steam service - Taff Vale Railways Class 02 0-6-2T 85
    Diesel service - British Railways Waggon & Maschinenbau Diesel Railbus No. M79964
    Timetable - Green Timetable
  • Sunday 26th January
    Steam service - Taff Vale Railways Class 02 0-6-2T 85
    Diesel service - British Railways Waggon & Maschinenbau Diesel Railbus No. M79964
    Timetable - Blue Timetable

The accompanying photograph shows M79964 on the 12th January this year, about to cross an ageing Bridge 11 south of Ingrow Tunnel on its way to Keighley. This scene will change considerably when this bridge, now approaching the end of its useful life, is replaced by a new structure in March. The Railway is running an appeal to raise the £150,000 needed to replace the bridge. For more information on the bridge and how you can contribute to the appeal, click HERE.

Whilst every effort will be 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.
