Due the current ongoing situation with COVID-19, Footplate Experiences are suspended until normality is resumed, but we do not anticipate experiences will return until well into 2021, when social distancing rules are lifted. Watch out on this website and social media.

You can now drive and fire a steam locomotive right here on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. These courses are proving hugely popular, with customers praising our friendly and informal approach.
