No au­tumn gala for Worth Val­ley

Steam Railway (UK) - - News -

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.
