Oxenhope – Carlisle Charter
We are delighted to announce the confirmed public times for the Oxenhope to Carlisle train charter on Friday 31st March. This train, celebrating the re-opening of the Settle to Carlisle line, is for pre-booked passengers only and was sold out some weeks ago:
Outward times :
All passengers for this train are advised to arrive at their boarding station 30 minutes prior to their departure time.
Participants on the train will receive sandwich boxes on the outward journey and a cream tea on the return journey. Complementary wine and soft drinks will be available throughout the journey.
Photographers and observers are reminded they must not trespass on either the KWVR or Network Rail railway. Doing so is dangerous, illegal and will cause delays. There will be a heavy presence of security staff patrolling the lineside between Oxenhope and Carlisle.
Holders of KWVR Photo Permits will be allowed trackside on the KWVR with the normal access restrictions applying. It is essential that anyone not carrying their permit AND membership card will be evicted from the Railway’s land.

Northern Rail Industrial Action, Saturday 8th April
All the seats on ‘Flying Scotsman trains on this day are taken but we would like to bring to everyone’s attention that Northern Rail services serving Keighley, will be the subject of industrial action on that day.
We are therefore advising all passengers to either change their mode of public transport or come to the Railway by car. Special car parking arrangements will be available during ‘Flying Scotsman’s visit. Visit the ‘Flying Scotsman on the KWVR’ page of the website for further parking information.
