COVID-19 Up to date Situation

As a result of the continued situation with COVID-19 the KWVR is now closed until further notice. No passenger services will be operating for the foreseeable and all work on the Railway has now ceased

We’ve tried really hard to keep things as normal as possible and had hoped to continue running our advertised passenger trains as normal. We’ve been closely monitoring the situation and as the health and well-being of our passengers, volunteers and staff is our top priority, we’ve made the decision to close the railway.

This means that there will be no passenger trains, shop or café facilities until further notice.

The events below have also been cancelled, please keep up to date on developments with future events via this website and social media:

  • Sparkle & Steam: 11 April & 8-9, 23 May
  • Haworth Haddock: 25 April & 30 May

If you have pre-booked any of the above events you should have received an email from us outlining your options. If you haven’t received this please email:, but please bear with us for a reply as it’s a very busy time for the admin team.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you updated with any further changes.

As a registered charity you can imagine that these cancellations have hit us hard, and we really appreciate all your support at this difficult time.
