A surprise was to be had when after a successful test run, newly restored Black 5 No. 45212 become available to be rostered in the weekends activities.

This is the first time in 18 months that the KWVR could have visiting locomotives after the limit on the bridge at Ingrow West was removed.

 

In the video, we see clips from Keighley, Oakworth, Haworth, and Oxenhope, as well as some ‘Haworth Shed Shots’. The video also features Express Trains, Freight Trains as well as Vintage carriages courtesy of the Vintage Carriage Trust.
