Locos, timetables, details, everything you want!
supprised about the lack of updates, or is there another thread somewhere???
Updates have been all over Facebook and twitter, hasn't been as much on here, but there's been plenty pf press about it - was heaving today!!
Plenty of snaps here if you're interested

46100 in top 'n tail mode with 41241 passing Oakworth today on the 14:48 Keighley - Oxenhope service
deleted uploaded my new updated footage of this gala.
apparently 34092 had a 'hard shunt' today due to failed tender brakes. Towed fro Kly to Haworth. Some minor injuries and damaged stock
Why write total rubbish ?
There was a major lineside fire today at Oxenhope station. Services were suspended for about 30 mins.
34092 struggled to depart Keighley and the service was caped to allow an on time finish.
As for the "hard shunt", no such towing of the loco to Haworth. No such damage to stock. Tender brakes tested fine and working.
Loco runs as booked tomorrow.
that was from a passenger on the train, taken at face value
keep ur hair on! poor firing causes fires, were u responsible? great start for ur first post.
again total lack of knowledge..
Lets keep it friendly please.
From Lineside workers (shoot them not me!!), service was suspended twice because of lineside fires, firstly around 1.00pm for an hour, then from 4.00pm. We left at 17.30 with nothing having moved from 15.30.
Great if you have inside information, otherwise it's what you pick up from the lineside workers who have been asked to walk the line looking for fires. The comment was that it wouldn't re-open until a mark one eyeball had okayed the line. How true that is I don't know, but acerbic comments are not welcome in an otherwise very friendly community, when trying to pass on what you have gleaned.
Rant over, 'nuff said.
No sign of 85 this week?? Is it under repair? TIA
85 at embsay, saw it on Saturday evening just gone
Thanks, wondered if it might be on loan elsewhere
A few shots from Tuesday, most trains that did run appeared to be poorly patronised from what I could see on the lineside.
25/06/2018 - Heading back to base - 41241 & 46100 returning to the sheds from Oxenhope having finished their duties for the day.
