The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, Keighley

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, Keighley

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is a 5-mile (8 km) long heritage railway line in West Yorkshire, England, that runs from Keighley to Oxenhope. It connects to the national rail network line at Keighley railway station. It is currently the only heritage railway that operates a whole branch line in its original form.

As a privately-owned heritage railway, the line does not specifically serve commuters; however, a study by Ove Arup & Partners funded by Metro is looking at the feasibility of a daily commuter service between Oxenhope and Keighley. After the first stage of the study was released, Metro stated concerns about a lack of funding and available rolling stock, meaning that services are unlikely to run in the short to medium term. Often, local residents who live in Oxenhope, Haworth, Oakworth and Ingrow catch the early morning diesel service to Keighley, and, often, from there to places beyond, to work or shop.
