The Railway Children Return

We’re ‘Back in Steam’!

The KWVR is open with trains running on Saturdays and Sundays between Keighley and Oxenhope, boarding at Haworth and Keighley. Tickets are available online – follow the link below! Tickets are on sale for a round trip starting at these three stations in compartment coaches.

'Worth Saving' success - thank you from the KWVR

Our 2020 ‘Worth Saving’ Appeal, was launched to combat the effects of COVID-19 as the Railway faced an uncertain future, and having fought through 2020 with the help of many individuals we made it into 2021. With the country once again in lockdown, the ‘Worth Saving’ Appeal is still open for donations, see below, but for those who have contributed to our Appeal success in 2020, follow this link to our message of appreciation ….

‘Worth Saving’ – once again we are asking for your help

All seemed set fair on the 19th August when we re-introduced our steam hauled passenger services. But on October 30th, everything came to a halt, all services were cancelled, shop and cafe’s closed, we even lost the first weekend of our revamped Christmas service, ‘The Elf Express’. The revenue we had planned to generate during November disintegrated in the blink of an eye.

‘The Elf Express’ hailed the return of steam to the Worth Valley on the 5th December and completed the Santa season without further hiccough followed by our traditional Mince Pie Specials from Boxing Day to the 3rd January. And then, as we all know, the country was locked down once again.

With no income anticipated until April, when a passenger service returns on the 17th , we once again, with everyone feeling the strain from the pandemic, are asking you, our loyal supporters, to dig deep again and contribute to the ‘Worth Saving’ Appeal which has remained open throughout the ‘Back in Steam’ programme.

In the meantime, if you can help, in whatever way you are able, to cover the gap in our income, it will be received with great gratitude from everyone here on the KWVR.


A look aback as preparations for ‘Back in Steam’ progress
