Dogs

The Railway is pleased to welcome all dogs and their owners onto our normal timetabled trains, subject to their owners ensuring that their dogs do not cause a distraction to the operation of the train or inconvenience and difficulties to fellow passengers. In addition dogs are not allowed onto carriage seats.

In the opinion of the Station Master or Guard, if a dog is not in the control of its owner and is causing problems, the Station Master or Guard may, at their discretion, request the dog be taken away from the Railway’s premises or removed from the train at the next available station or be cared for by its owner in a more appropriate area away from other passengers.

Dog Ticket: £1.00

We recognise that these dogs provide valuable assistance, not only for the sight impaired, but also for those with hearing loss, epilepsy, diabetes, physical mobility problems and more. Assistance Dogs are welcome on ALL KWVR trains, for which no charge is made.

Assistance Dog Ticket: FREE

Refreshments

At Oxenhope we will have a pop-up Cafe serving hot and cold drinks, confectionary and cold snacks.

At Keighley the platform kiosk will also be serving hot and cold drinks, confectionary and cold snacks

Regular visitors on the Mince Pie Specials will know that in past years we have included a Buffet car on the train serving beer, wine and spirits as well as hot and cold drinks and a small selection of snacks and confectionary. Using compartment carriages for the service and due to the restrictions placed upon us at the current time, we cannot include a buffet car on the train and, disappointingly, we will not be be providing our normal service on the train. In addition, due to licencing regulations, we cannot serve alcohol at either Oxenhope or Keighley.

Health & Safety

We‘ve taken special precautions to make sure your visit to the Railway is as safe as possible.

How we will ensure that the Railway’s a safe place to visit?

  • We’ve implemented enhanced cleaning regimes in line with government guidance. Each compartment will be fully cleaned before every journey, and hand sanitiser will be available at various locations.
  • We’re proud to have been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry charter mark. This shows that we’ve worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines. It means you can be sure we have processes in place to maintain cleanliness and safety.

How will we enforce social distancing?

The safety of our passengers and staff is our main priority. On arrival at Oxenhope you’ll be welcomed into the spacious Exhibition Shed. Compartments will be called by number over the tannoy. Please wait until you hear your compartment before making your way to the platform. Our fully trained staff will open the compartment doors and will greet you at the end of the journey. Please remain seated until the door is opened. A one way system will be clearly marked out on the platform.

Will we need to wear a face covering?

Face coverings aren’t compulsory when inside the private compartments as you’ll only be sharing with your household or linked household. The law requires a face covering to be worn in any indoor public building, this includes the Exhibition Shed. Unless you are exempt, please bring a covering to wear whilst inside the shed.
