My visit to the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Spring Gala ended where it began, photographing a departure from #Keighley station. #SDJR 7F #53808 hauls the last train for Oxenhope bringing to a close the first day of the Spring Gala, and a very enjoyable day it was too.
A trek through an extremely muddy field (I still haven't got my shoes clean!) allowed this shot of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway 7F #53808 , another of the guest locos at the recent Keighley & Worth Valley Railway's Spring Gala.
Thank goodness it's Friday. The weekend is here and we are running steam trains again, not as many last last weekend though. We have the Black 5 44871 running courtesy of Ian Riley Engineering.
Even though I've posted several photos of #70013 '#OliverCromwell ' carrying #TheMasterCutler headboard, I didn't actually know anything about the history of the train. So to rectify this I set off to the Wikipedia to learn more...
It turns out that the Master Cutler was originated in 1947 by the LNER, and ran from Sheffield to London along the Great Central Line. #BritishRailways continued the service, running it on the East Coast Mainline after the closure of the Great Central, before finally moving it to the Midlands Mainline, where service is now operated by East Midlands Trains.
Given the variation down the years, it makes sense that it would eventually show up on the #worthvalleyrailway , seen here arriving into #Haworth .
