Royal Visit in Pictures

Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall visited the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway on Friday the 16th February as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations of the railway re-opening during 1968 and the achievements made by volunteers during this time.

During the visit, that took place mid-afternoon on the 16th, Her Royal Highness visited the locomotive maintenance facility in Haworth and met a new generation of volunteers, plus others of more mature stature, working on steam locomotive restorations. The Duchess then travelled by a steam hailed train hauled, appropriately, by Taff Vale Railway no. 85 to Oxenhope in the Old Gentlemen’s Saloon featured in the classic film ‘The Railway Children’.

The visit was highly successful and below is a sample of the photographs of this historic visit with the full collection in Flickr >>>
