Reasons for trip

Steam mad grandson has been suffering from withdrawal symptoms so was really excited when the railway reopened in mid April. Their “website”: proclaimed “We are back in steam!”

Admittedly it was a limited service with trains only running at weekends and boarding at Haworth for a single round trip. It didn’t stop at intermediate stations, although you could get off at Keighley and Oxenhope to watch the loco run round. Tickets have to be booked in advance by the compartment.

There was hand gel available at the booking office and shop entrance and staff around to advise passengers. Passengers did observe social distancing and one great advantage is we got to see the railway without the crowds.

It is a lovely run, especially when the sun is shining.

Downside was we couldn’t do multiple trips and the Museums at Ingrow were shut. Keighley Station kiosk was open for drinks and snacks although the station buffet car at Oxenhope was still shut. There was only one engine in steam so we didn’t pass at Damens. But that is just nit picking! It was still a good trip.

There are a lot more pictures “here.”:
