Whilst every effort will made to ensure that the advised motive power is available, the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway reserve the right to change this when operational circumstances so dictate.
The Railway will run intensively from 0830 most days into the early evening. Stations are gaslit during the evenings and give a night-time glow as your train rolls in.
The public passenger timetable is now available on the website, but for the enthusiast who likes details of all movements on the day, passenger, goods and light engine movements, the Working Timetable can be downloaded HERE now.>>>>
A branch goods train will be in operation during the weekend and will be highlighted on the working timetable for each day.
Steam gala weekends offer a rare chance to fly through our intermediate stations at full speed of 25mph on our non-stop services.
