Its that time of the week again…. its Throwback Thursdays! This week, we take you back to early 2016 as we visit the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway for their Winter Steam Gala.

Locomotives in Steam for the KWVR Winter Steam Gala 2016

All available steam locomotives were in steam for the event. No visitors were brought in – this is due to the weight restriction at Ingrow West, which was removed later in the year.

Featuring:

  • BR 4F No. 43924
  • BR Std 4 No. 75078
  • Taff Vale No. 85
  • LNWR Coal Tank No. 1054
  • Tank Engine ‘Nunlow’
  • USATC S160 No. 5820 ‘Big Jim’

The Steam Crane was also in operation at Oakworth Yard
