Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.

The 5-miles long K&WVR runs from Keighley to Oxenhope  along the Worth Valley in West Yorkshire. This post, 29th April 2016, comprises two photographs of jigsaw puzzles each featuring a scene from the K&WVR.














Picture one (left) shows a 100 piece puzzle from Hestair's Trains series, titled Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. The locomotive shown on a passenger service is ex LMS Ivatt class '2MT' 2-6-2T, No.41241. The loco is currently being rebuilt in the engine shed.

An ex BR 'Standard' class '4MT' 4-6-0 locomotive, No.75078, is featured in the next picture (right). This locomotive returned to steam in 2015 and is a current operator on the line. The jigsaw is a 64-piece example from Philmar's Steam Trains series,  titled Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. An unidentified saddle tank locomotive is behind No.75078, on the double-headed, passenger service. If you know the i.d. of this second loco please let me know.
