3 November 2019
On Sunday 3 November the Coal Tank, No.1054, will be steamed for the last time before overhaul.
The engine will be in light steam at Ingrow for the benefit of representatives of the National Trust from Penrhyn Castle and East Riddlesden Hall (Keighley).
Guests are asked to arrive from 11.00 onwards.
The engine will probably run up and down the yard at Ingrow, but will not be operating any trains.
The engine will be ‘de-commisioned’ that day in order for work to commence on its next boiler overhaul, the intention being to have it ready next in 2022, in time for the 100th anniversary of the amalgamation of the LNWR and L&Y.
