Bags of atmosphere. Whilst most preserved railways are out in the country, the K&WVR is a rare example of a short branch line through a predominantly built-up area.

Oakworth Station was used as the location for the 1970 film The Railway Children

Check the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway's website for opening times etc.
