Locomotive Roster for the weekend Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd February 2020

This weeks steam service is once again in the hands of our Taff Vale Railway no. 85, ably assisted, as always, by the diesel railbus M79964.

The motive power for the weekend 1st & 2nd February will be as follows:

  • Saturday 1st February
    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 2nd February
    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 of 85 taken on the 11th January this year, shows the locomotive crossing the soon to be replaced Bridge 11 south of Ingrow Tunnel on its way to Oxenhope. 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.
