Keighley & Worth Valley Railway


The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is the only complete heritage railway in the country.  Starting from our main line connection at Keighley we run steam and heritage diesel trains through the Bronte country along a 5 mile stretch of railway to the villages of Oakworth, Haworth and Oxenhope in the beautiful Worth Valley, as well as serving Ingrow and Damems. 

Famous for being the shooting location of the 1970 film ’The Railway Children’, our railway is popular amongst enthusiast and the general-public, but what is most astounding to many, is that KWVR is run almost entirely by volunteers. Together one group looks after the 5 miles of railway including numerous bridges, the track, signalling and all the associated earthworks of a typically hilly West Yorkshire valley. We hold regular working parties midweek and at weekends with two, week long possessions for major works before and after the summer.
