Worth Valley Gala March 2019

Our 2 six-wheelers 279 and 1507 together with Club Carriage 47 were used for the three days of the Gala between Friday 8th March and Sunday 10th March 2019. This was during the period when Bogie Brake 1474 was not available for public service and its place was taken by the VCT Chatham Brake. The set ran with a variety of locomotives, mainly shuttle services between Keighley and Ingrow, with the occasional journey through to Oxenhope.
As usual, the carriages were very popular and sales of stock in the Club Carriage raised valuable funds. See some photos below.
