55019 stars at KWVR 50th Anniversary Event

The DPS was pleased to take part in the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway’s 50th Anniversary Gala, with 55019 ‘ROYAL HIGHLAND FUSILIER’ entertaining visitors on June 30th and July 1st. The DPS’s relationship with the KWVR goes back almost 30 years, as 55015 ‘TULYAR’ was one of the guest engines at the line’s first diesel gala, back in November 1988. The picture below shows 55019 heading for Oxenhope on its first working on the Sunday, having been added to the service at Haworth loop.

55019 is due to be returned to Barrow Hill this week – possibly tomorrow (the original planned move today having been cancelled).
