Keighley & Worth Valley Railway

The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is a standard gauge line which joins the national railway network at Keighley and runs 5-miles up the Worth Valley to Oxenhope.

The Railway is perhaps most famous for its role in the 1970 film version of Edith Nesbit’s story The Railway Children. The Railway has published a book which describes the making of the film and includes over 70 photographs along with the recollections of many volunteers who were involved.

    • Thanks for your interest. We welcome contributions of videos and photographs for consideration either linked to an event like the Winter Steam Spectacular or individual photographs that we can link to a Post on a specific subject, eg this weeks loco roster feature an image of 43924 and we try to have a different photo every time the engine is featured. Ideally images we select will be taken at different vantage points along the railway, preferably, but not exclusively, in locations away from those taken on a casual visit to the Railway. Ideal size no more than 1mb. Videos will preferably of high definition quality and fully edited. At the moment we cannot insert videos into a post only link them to either YouTube or Vimeo.
      For photographs send them to news@kwvr.co.uk and send us the link on YouTube or Vimeo
