Suspension of Weekend Services from 4th January

We were very proud of all our efforts that meant that we were able to run a COVID-secure service during December, making full use of the fleet of compartment stock on the Railway, including our own ‘suburban’ Mark 1s as well as vehicles from the Lancashire and Yorkshire RailwayTrust and the Vintage Carriages Trust.

However, with the country now in lockdown and the Government now restricting all but essential travel, services on the KWVR are suspended but we hope to recommence operations in time for the February half term if restrictions are lifted to allow us to do so. However with predictions that the lockdown may extend to the end of February and beyond, the half term restart is looking more unlikely.

Sadly, we understand that this means that we join other heritage railways in suspending operations for the third time in recent months, but the safety and well being of our volunteers and passengers will always come first.
