No autumn gala for Worth Valley
There will be no Keighley & Worth Valley Railway steam gala this autumn.The KWVR is concerned that with the ‘Beer & Music Festival’ on October 19‑22 falling close to half‑ term, plus ‘Santa Specials’ preparation, a steam gala would have been too much work for volunteers. Partially making up for the loss is a new ‘Small Engines Gala’ on July 7‑9; the autumn gala may return in the future. ‘Scotsman’s visit meant the KWVR was unable to arrange a celebration of 150 years since the Oxenhope branch opened on April 13 1867. An event will instead be held later.
