Keighley locomotive is damaged on a loan at heritage railway centre
10:00am Tuesday 2nd October 2012 in Keighley
One of Keighley’s most historic steam locomotives has been damaged during a visit to a heritage railway in Derbyshire.
Sir Berkeley’s axle was damaged because one of its axleboxes ran very hot while operating at the Midland Railway Butterley.
The 122-year-old engine is awaiting repair and will not be able to operate during next month's steam gala on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.
Sir Berkeley appeared in The Railway Children film in the 1970s.
It was restored several years ago by the Vintage Carriages Trust, which has a museum at Ingrow railway station, and is usually based at the Middleton Railway in Leeds.
Keighley's steam gala, from October 12 to 14, will feature several locos on their home line as well as visiting engines such as the "Flying Pig".
Making their last gala appearance will be the Ivatt Class 2 no 41241 and L&Y Ironclad no 957 which are coming to the end of their operational boiler certificates.
There will be rides on a brake van at Ingrow station, and trains running into the evenings, with stations lit by gaslight.
