KWVR, only way up the Valley?

With snow carpeting the Keighley and Worth Valley area, the Railway may be the only way to travel on public transport between Keighley and Oxenhope, shades of Tour de France (without the crowds).

Oxenhope-150117'c-CLThanks to the efforts of our hardy staff, photographed here at Oxenhope, having been pressed ganged by Catering Manager, Christine Laycock, the platforms are clear, so passengers can safely travel. Back down in Haworth Yard at 5.00am this morning the steam raisers braved the conditions to ensure this would not be an all day diesel service and 43924 would be ready for action.

  1. Well done steam raisers and snow clearers – not funny when winter bites and the early mornings are dark. Such dedication keeps the ‘ wheels oiled ‘ and the public aren’t disappointed.
