Ingrow Bridge Appeal

The railway is now over 150 years old with much of the infrastructure dating back to the earliest days of the KWVR in the nineteenth century. As you would expect, some of the Railway’s structures are succumbing to the passage of time and one such is Bridge 11, the first bridge your train crosses after leaving Ingrow Tunnel. As a result, we really need your help to the finance its replacement.

Bridge 11 at Ingrow is a major bridge dating back to the 1800’s. It’s now coming to the end of its useful life and needs replacing at a cost of £120,000 – as a charity this is a huge amount for us to find. Work is underway on the concrete beams, and this week they have been inspected at the maker’s works. The beams will be lifted in place by road crane and with the help of Bahamas Loco Society, a 50 ton steam crane in Spring 2020, we’ll keep you updated with our progress.

Haworth Shed News – (belated) October 2019

It has been some time since our young reporter Joe Shaw wrote his previous article and one would think that over the Summer, with no school work, Joe would have plenty of time to put virtual pen to paper. However, it is testimony to the dedication of our younger volunteers that he has been far too busy, working ON the Railway in a number of roles to help the wheels to keep turning during the summer months (and these youngsters do have a life (just) outside the Railway).

So once again we are delighted to publish, belatedly, Joe’s latest report, with a promise of more to follow soon.

The previous edition in this series mainly consisted on news on the diesel fleet, we are now back over to steam, with a rather detailed update on Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Class 25 ‘Ironclad 0-6-0 no. 957 as well as a brief update on WD 2-8-0 no. 90733.

Seen at Haworth on a service to Keighley, over the weekend of the 2nd & 3rd November, DRB no. M79964 operated along the branch for the first time in over 18 months.
