It's hard to believe that 7 months had passed since my last visit to the KWVR, I really must do better next year as I feel like I've been neglecting the place. It's probably even longer, years in fact, since I last photographed the Santa Specials there, I'd have to check, but possibly the very cold winter of 2009. Anyway, as I was planning a quick trip to Leeds to catch the HST farewell, it made sense to jump off the train at Hebden Bridge on my way back and catch the 'Bronte Bus' up to Oxenhope Station and get a few shots there. The light was going fast as it tends to do at this time of the year, and with long gaps between the trains I decided to just get some shots of one of the Santas and then a few shots of the DMU service train before departing. I do like the KWVR so will be back again for a longer visit before too long. Locos in service that day on the Santas were Black 5 steam loco 45212, and Class 37 diesel 37075, the service train was Class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit No's. M51189 & Sc51803.
