Hi folks,

Tempted to go up to Haworth next weekend to photograph the Santa Specials, some nice top and tail action in 2011 with the 4F and Class 25 - does anyone know what is running this year?

i think it will be mainly 43924 and 80002 taking turns on the santa train with 25 059 on the back but if you are looking catch both in steam then both will be as one will be out of the Santa train with the other in steam on standby at Haworth MPD.

Please excuse my ignorance but why the Class 25 on the back?
The Class 25 is on the Back of the train so that the Steam Engine doesn't have to run round when it gets to Keighley or Oxenhope so it means that the train can pull into Keighley or Oxenhope and drop passengers off and then reload and then can depart.

I think it takes about 20 - 30 mins to run the steam engine around where as with the 25 on the back the train will just be in the station around 10 mins

80002 and the 25 on the run today, with the 4F in the yard along with the Class 37 (was this also on standby or just being moved about?). Running about 20 minutes down when I saw it:
