It is at the north end of the Keighley and Worth Valley heritage railway line.---- Keighley and Worth Valley Railway was opened in 1867, by local Mill owners. British Railways closed the line in 1962. A Preservation Society bought it and in 1968 opened as a heritage railway. Stations are Keighley, Ingrow, Damerns, Oakworth, Haworth, and Oxenhope.-- Haworth yard is where preservation work is carried out. Fares vary to the journey taken. Oakworth retains its Edwardian look. There are walks near the station. Haworth is famous for the Bronte Sisters. Ingrow has a rail museum... Keighley station is easily accessd by train, bus or car. There is a car park nearby.----------On this trip i travelled from Keighley to Oakworth only, I"ve done the full trip years ago. Carriages are original stock, so i found them hard to board and get off, but help was at hand from friendly staff. The timetables as five versions by colour, i travelled in June Pink in colour.--------------The 1970 film "The Railway Children " a British drama based on the novel by E.Nesbit was filmed mainly at Oakworth station, some scenes at Oxenhope and Haworth.DSCN0663.J Timetables.PGDSCN0662.JPGDSCN0661.JPGDSCN0659.J GaslightPGDSCN0657.JPGEdwardian Waiting room.
