Worth Valley Steam Railway

Built in 1867, this heritage line is among a small number of remaining steam locomotive railways in England, and the only one that operates a whole branch line in its original form. Situated amid beautiful green scenery in Yorkshire's Worth Valley, the route was closed in 1962 but resurrected by a team of volunteers in 1968. Thanks to the grit and determination of the locals who worked so hard to rescue the route, this small slice of transport history has been well preserved for current and future generations to enjoy.

The Worth Valley Railway is easily accessible via a connection to the mainline network at Keighley Station, and continues to delight passengers from around the country with sights, sounds and smells from the Golden Age of Steam.
