Our programme of Haworth Haddocks for 2017 is now fully booked – look out for announcements early in 2018 for dates throughout the year.
These special evening trains depart Oxenhope at 7:30pm for two leisurely return journeys along the branch with a pause at one of our superbly restored stations while the food is served. Our award winning Real-Ale Buffet Cars will be open on the train serving a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
This is what some of our guests thought of their trip on the ‘Haworth Haddock’ in 2016 on Tripadvisor.
“There were 24 of us that did the Haworth Haddock for my mums 70th birthday. We were able to take balloons on the train and decorate the carriage up …. Didn’t really know what to expect when we first booked this but I can honestly say that I would definitely do this again. We had an amazing evening.”
“It was a lovely nostalgic trip on a steam train and we had great fish and chips and live entertainment from the Pretend Beetles at the station. The whole evening was superb and I would thoroughly recommend it.”
So don’t delay and take their recommendation, book now to avoid disappointment!

“…a most enjoyable evening – a good time was had by all…”
Your evening will start at Oxenhope Station where you will be greeted by one of our friendly volunteer stewards upon arrival. The “Haworth Haddock” will normally be in the platform by 7pm, to give you plenty of chance to visit the bars before the rush starts.
Shortly after leaving Oxenhope, our stewards will bring round fresh teacakes and condiments before we arrive at Keighley when Fish & Chips will be served at your seat, piping hot and delicious!
The train will then make a leisurely journey to Oxenhope, returning to Keighley so you can stretch your legs and have a boogie to some toe-tapping classics, played by one of our excellent bands: make the most of the evening!
At the end of the evening, the train will arrive back at Oxenhope around 11pm.
Every “Haworth Haddock” will lay over at Keighley Station, where there will be a band playing on the platform. The on-train bars will be open throughout, so you can either dance the night away on the platform, or simply relax and enjoy a drink in the comfort of our coaches.
If you have been to on a Haworth Haddock train before or attended the beer festival you may have a favourite band. The bands that will be performing on each night will be:
Do you have a birthday, anniversary, or even a hen party coming up? Why not treat your friends and family to a party with a difference? Enjoy traditional British Fish and Chips, while travelling behind a lovingly restored vintage steam locomotive and dance the night away with one of our excellent live bands.

Our party package costs just £22 per table of 4 and includes reserved, specially decorated, seats, banners and a suitable cake.
