The Tea Hut

Behind the Oakworth Station, famous for its role in the film “The Railway Children sits the beautifully presented Oakworth Tea Hut. With outside seating away from the hustle and bustle of the railway, the tea hut offers a range of hand-scooped local ice creams and ices, freshly ground coffee and of course.. A great selection of teas and soft drinks. On event days the outside area hosts local artisan food vendors serving handmade pizzas and modern “street food” options.

Exhibition Shed, Oxenhope

The Tea Room

On the Oxenhope Station platform is The Tea Room, an atmospheric vintage tea carriage that used to speed along Britain’s mainline railway network. Here, we serve top-quality tea coffee, and other soft drinks. The tearoom offers a range of sandwiches, jacket potatoes, pies, cakes and other local confectionery available to eat in or takeaway for your journey on the heritage railway. The Tea Room is open on all running days from 9.30 am until the departure of the last train.

Bahamas Locomotive Society

The Engine Shed is an accredited museum that houses numerous displays and artefacts from the age of Steam.  Throughout the museum, you can follow a route to guide you through the exhibits and memorabilia to experience how railways used to be. The path will help you understand the history of the railways, the steam locomotive, and the lives of the people who built, operated and maintained them. There are several display cabinets for you to browse so you can take your time and gain a real insight into how things used to be. 

Vintage Carriages Trust

The Carriage Works holds the Trust’s collection of nine historic railway carriages, three small industrial steam locomotives, a 1950s diesel railbus and a group of railway posters and other miscellaneous railway items. 

The Museum of Rail Travel is part of Rail Story and is open every day except Christmas Day. There is a small charge for entry to the museum, but it is free to passengers on the railway who hold a Day Rover ticket.
