There has been many changes in the last 50 years, with continuous developments and improvements to the railway. The station at Ingrow West had to be rebuilt as the original station building was demolished in the 1960’s. The building you see now was transported stone by stone from Foulridge in Lancashire, and it was re-built as you see it today.
The railway is run primarily by volunteers and it is their continuous hard work which allows us to run the successful railway we have today. The KWVR carries over 115,000 visitors a year and runs over 200 days a year. The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is also used frequently as a film set and is most well-known for the 1970 film The Railway Children. However in recent years the railway has starred in Swallows and Amazons, Testament of Youth and numerous TV productions.
