Virtual Locomotive Roster for Weekend 13th & 14th June and weekdays 17th -19th June 2020

This weekend the virtual standard weekend service will see 5820 in operation on both days and the Wednesday – Friday service and 1054 on the vintage train service on Sunday. The Class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit will operate the Saturday diesel service.

Our time travel this week takes us back to 2014. Just like last week, there was no vintage train service on Sunday in 2014 when MR 4F 0-6-0 43924, hauling a Father's Day luncheon service, joined USATC S160 2-8-0 5820. Our imaginations have to stretch a little further as this year Taff Vale Class O2 0-6-2T no. 85 would have been the preferred locomotive for our vintage trains but six years ago was still a kit of parts in Haworth Locomotive Works.

The mainstay of this weekend's virtual steam service will be USATC S160 2-8-0 5820 and the diesel turn will have our Class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit running the services with the first train leaving Haworth at 09.00 on Saturday. On Sunday 5820 will be joined by LNWR 0-6-2 'Coal Tank' no. 1054 hauling the vintage train service comprising coaches from the late 19th and early 20th centuries belonging to the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust and Vintage Carriages Trust.

The virtual Wednesday - Friday service, just as in 2014, will have 5820 continuing on from it's weekend duties.
