Full steam ahead for the winter gala

5:00am Monday 4th March 2013

Plumes of steam signalled the return of the winter steam gala, held on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway this weekend.
Vintage trains travelled the line from Friday until yesterday, with gaslights lighting up the stations to give an air of added Victorian authenticity.
The annual event is popular with train enthusiasts and families eager to experience the glory days of rail travel with families getting a taste of what life used to be like on such trains.
In Haworth there were guided tours of the locomotive shed and workshops, as well as hot food and miniature trains at Oxenhope station.
This event saw the BR standard 4MT tank 80002 Locomotive make its last gala appearance before overhaul.
