The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is famous for running a varied collection of steam powered trains between Keighley and Oxenhope. However diesel powered trains can also be experienced on this challenging line.
As well as the June Diesel Gala in June, on selected Wednesdays, a heritage diesel will run a passenger service, working to the Yellow Timetable, a sample of which can be seen below.
Many visitors won’t remember steam traction, so the Diesel Gala brings back memories of these heritage machines that worked well beyond the end of steam, some of them in regular service today.
