The school Easter holidays start for many schools next week. Wondering what to do with the children? Starting on the 14th April the Railway will be running steam trains every day starting at 11.25 from Oxenhope and 12.10 from Keighley.
In addition, why not try a Vintage Bus Tour of the Worth Valley area. If the weather is fine an open top vehicle may be used – time to blow away those winter blues! Starting at Haworth at 11.00, the buses depart from Oxenhope at the same time as the trains and give passengers views over Haworth Moor and a very different view of the Worth Valley on their way down to Ingrow where you can enjoy looking round the fine collection of vintage railway carriages at the Museum of Rail Travel and the Ingrow Loco Museum in the old Midland Railway Goods Shed before catching the bus or train back up to Oxenhope or down to Keighley to continue your journey in the Worth Valley.
The buses are provided by Baildon based hire company, Classic Vehicles of Yesteryear, who have a wonderfully restored collection of vintage buses, coaches and cars. In the photograph below, Leeds City Transport 1962 Daimler CVG6 provided the tour bus from a snow covered but sunny Oxenhope. Having seen little snow last winter all concerned are hoping that winter does not come late to the Worth Valley.
A Day Rover ticket covers both the train and the bus, click here for full Easter details of the trains, buses and children’s activities whilst on the Railway. For the train and bus timetable click here.
