In this weeks Throwback Thursday episode, we steam back to February Half Term in 2016 as we see Postman Pat and Jess The Cat  visit the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.

A special timetable was in operation and Steam Locomotive 4F No. 43924 and Railbus M79964 were running up and down the line between Keighley and Oxenhope taking excited children and adults to go and see the famous postman who was stationed at Keighley due to the inclement weather.

The Railbus is a popular sight on the railway during the less-busy periods of the year. It is also popular on morning runs and also gives a great view of the railway from a different perspective. You can also the driver working in the cab!
