Donate

The Railway greatfully accepts all forms of donations – with the aim of supporting the maintenance and protection of the structures, buildings, plant, locomotives, rolling stock and equipment of the Railway

We need your help!

We continue to collect funds to secure the future of the Railway. These funds help us carry out any necessary locomotive overhauls, rolling stock restorations, infrastructure and station repairs and upgrades like ongoing works to our famous bridge – the place where The Railway Children waved their red petticoats to stop the train in the classic 1970s film.

Your donations helped us restore iconic locomotive Ivatt 2-6-2 tank 41241 that took part on the re-opening special back in 1968 and which was returned to action in time for the KWVR’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2018. Another iconic locomotive, Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway 0-6-0 957, better known as ‘The Green Dragon’ in ‘The Railway Children’ film, is now being readied for the 50th Anniversary of the making of this wonderful film and donations will help us bring this to a successful conclusion.

Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Trust

The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Trust is a registered charity, registered charity number 1032933, formed in 1995 as a means of raising capital sums for the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. The aim of the Trust is to support the maintenance and protection of the structures, buildings, plant, locomotives, rolling stock and equipment of the Railway.

But it’s not all about locomotives. Our infrastructure is over 150 years old and much needs replacing. Currently there is an appeal for £150,000 to replace Bridge 11 (below) at Ingrow. You can help with this specific appeal HERE.

The Trust continues to generate and collect funds according to current needs, and accepts bequests & donations.
