Featured Fridays this week is our Christmas special and comes from Tom Blackman and is a collection of photos of his visit to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and their Santa Specials.

We have previously said that our last episode was the last Featured Fridays, but this one was too good to miss out!

Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and their Christmas Santa Specials

The Santa Specials have been held by the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway throughout December and have featured so many different Steam and Diesel Locomotives.

On Toms visit, S160 No. 5820 ‘Big Jim’ and visiting Black 5 No. 44871 were in charge of Santa Specials seen here in wintery conditions in Yorkshire.

Here are the photos which he has sent us (all copyright is with Tom!):
