Keighley & Worth Valley Railway
Vintage Train Day
Sunday 19 June 2022
We last visited here back in 2017 and this railway is always a favourite destination. The KWVR has become synonymous with the 1970’s film ‘The Railway Children’ starring Dinah Sheridan and Jenny Agutter.
Today you are booked on the 10.20 am train from Ingrow Station for the initial run then you are free to do as you please for the remainder of the day as you will be issued with day Rover tickets just make sure you are back at Ingrow Station by 17.15 in time to catch the coach back home.
There is plenty of opportunity for those who wish to partake of real ale whilst traveling on the trains. The Keighley & Worth Valley is unique in that most of their trains convey a real-ale buffet car, serving real-ale from traditional hand pumps. The buffet car also serves tea, coffee, and a wide selection of soft drinks & sandwiches – but it is the real-ale that is the real treat for our passengers.
The Buffet at Oxenhope is open whenever passenger trains are running between Oxenhope and Keighley, Christine Laycock and her dedicated band of volunteers will always welcome you on board the British Railways, Mk.1 buffet car, positioned alongside the platform at our terminus station. There you can buy hot and cold drinks, soups, sandwiches, hot bites and sweets.
On hot summer’s days sit outside and enjoy the quiet surroundings of Oxenhope Station or on cold and wintry Pennine days, take refuge inside the buffet and have a hot chocolate to drive away the cold and damp.
Additional information such as timetables will be on your information sheet on the day.
