Steam Trains Every Day

Young or not so young, from the local area or visiting from further afield, from the first day of June there is no need to worry about whether steam trains are operating.

Starting 1st of June, right through to the 13th September steam trains will be in operation every day*. Travel by train and explore the area from all of our stations

Look at the time table page to see the time of trains on the day of your visit and download the timetable at home. Or pick up a timetable leaflet from any KWVR station.

* Due to operating restrictions, trains will operate an Ingrow – Oxenhope Shuttle on the 15th July and there will be no trains on the 16th & 17th July. A replacement Vintage Bus service will operate on all 3 days.

What's on

Children Go Free

When you are wondering what to do with the children this Summer, as in years past, children will travel for free.

Every day through June, July and August , when accompanied by an adult with a Rover ticket, children will travel for free* on regular KWVR trains subject to our terms and conditions for this offer.

A Rover ticket includes entrance to the Museums at Ingrow and, on days when it is operating, a tour of the area by vintage bus.

And, with a Day Rover there is a saving on the entrance fee for the Bronte Parsonage Museum, so the whole family is a winner!

Along the line

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.

We publish every week in our News section, the guest ales that are on offer from the buffet car.

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.

No visit to the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway would be complete without stopping of at the 2 museums at Ingrow (West).

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 museum is open every day throughout the year, except Christmas Day, from 11.00 to 16.00.

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.

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.
