News from Haworth Sheds

If you have visited the KWVR and travelled along the Worth Valley, I am sure you will have encountered at least one of our young volunteers. One of those volunteers, 15 years old Joe Shaw, has joined the website team and, with a fair wind and school work permitting, Joe will be bringing news of what is happening in Haworth Shed and, hopefully in due course, other areas of the Railway. Those who follow Haworth Shed on Facebook, may well recognise some of the content, and thanks must go to the volunteers there for keeping us posted on what is happening to keep the wheels turning.

This article is the first of what we hope will be a regular feature of News@KWVR. We’ll let Joe take up the story ……

The KWVR has nearly 20 operational diesel and steam locomotives, to keep the wheels turning on all of these locomotives, without a doubt, is a challenge. However, fortunately at the KWVR, there is a team of hardworking, enthusiastic volunteers who work day and, sometimes, night to ensure that these locomotives are well maintained and are able to haul trains up and down the valley.
