Along the line

FIND TIME TO STOP AT INGROW…

…. where Ingrow West Station and Yard have been transformed into RAIL STORY – a collaborative plan between the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, the Vintage Carriages Trust and the Bahamas Locomotive Society to develop the site progressively giving visitors greater opportunities to learn about and understand about the preservation and conservation of our railway heritage. RAIL STORY is open every day throughout the year, except Christmas Day, from 11.00 to 16.00.

The largest of the two museums is the Museum of Rail Travel which has a display of beautifully restored railway coaches from an era gone by. All the coaches are accessible with video presentations describing the travelling experience you would have had if going by train all those years ago.

The old goods shed at Ingrow is now the home of the Bahamas Locomotive Society who have established Ingrow Loco. Here you will find locomotives, displays, exhibits, and archive film which combine to create a story of the steam locomotive and the people involved in their manufacture, operation and maintenance. This museum is open weekends and selected days in summer.

The Keighley & Worth Valley is unique in that most of our trains convey a real-ale buffet car, serving real-ale from traditional hand pumps. The buffet car also serves tea, coffee and a selection of soft drinks & snacks – but it’s the real-ale that is the real treat for our passengers.

The Railway mainly uses local breweries, but we have often have specialist craft ales from breweries further afield. There can be up to three separate real-ales on board – we usually try to at least have two!

If you are in the area when trains are not running, or you need a snack to start your day during train running days, then the staff at the Oxenhope Buffet, situated on the platform in a Mark1 buffet carriage, will be happy to serve you with a nice hot bacon or sausage butty to get you off to a fine start to the day. So fill up your tenders and replenish your tanks with a good hearty roll and a hot drink to make sure your day gets off to a good start.

Or when you are ready for lunch, drop by to top up your reserves with some good honest Yorkshire pie and peas, washed down by a bottle of pop or hot drink or, if trains are running, something from the on-board bar where hand pulled real ale is served all day on selected trains.

Jubilee Bar – a venue with a difference

Do you have that special occasion coming up, be it a special birthday, engagement party, retirement or even looking for somewhere to hold your corporate event? The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway may well just have what you’re looking for and with something a little bit different from your normal venue.

Built as a standard Mark1 Open Corridor coach, the coach has been converted into a bar car, painted in mock-Pullman livery to complement the Pullman carriages and fitted with an authentic bar salvaged from a public house in Leeds. Named ‘The Jubilee Bar’ to commemorate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, this coach is perfect for a party requiring their own private bar.

Carol Service Train 17th December

The ever popular and not to be missed Annual Carol Service aboard the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is being held again on Saturday, 17th December.

Starting at Oxenhope at 19.00, the train travels the Valley with carols, readings and prayers at stations along the way. Book NOW to avoid disappointment.
