    I am predominantly visiting for the diesels (planning to attend Fri & Sat) but have a massive soft spot for the 4F so I'm keeping fingers crossed in features on Saturday as it will almost certainly be the final time I'm in the vicinity before it's boiler ticket expires!

    Is there a link to a proposed timetable for the event so I can decide the best time to visit as I have flexible arrangements during the event period that allows a window of opportunity hence the need to decide the best time to visit / support the event.

    Spent Saturday at Oakworth which seemed very short of linesiders; were they travelling or had they gone elsewhere ? Sadly 27001 failed and was replaced by 20031 but a good day nonetheless ! Images below and thanks to KWVR for a good day out - hope it gains the success it deserves !

    Spent a few very enjoyable hours here today. The timetable slipped massively and the some of the planned motive power (43924/41241) had not appeared before I left, but everyone seemed to be taking it in their stride and customers of all ages looked to be enjoying themselves. I'm immunocompromised (leukaemia) and am very wary still of enclosed public areas, but managed two rides Keighley-Ingrow and return in otherwise empty compartments with windows open. First out behind 27001 and back by 26007, the second with 957 and 78022 top and tail. Both enjoyable in different ways. Also manged a quick look around the engine shed at Ingrow. Work looks to be progressing well on the Coal Tank. It seemed to be getting quite busy as I left at lunchtime with more family groups arriving at both Keighley and Ingrow. A "grand day out" for me, well about half a day! Thanks K&WVR.

    My video and a few photos from an enjoyable weekend in the Worth Valley. Well done to all concerned for putting on the event!
