Every weekend from 24th July to 22nd August, various times
Each weekend vintage trains will run pulling a selection of historic coaches, many from the Victorian era (1837 – 1901) and rarely available for public use.
The carriages are part of the railway’s museum collection and include carriages from the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust (L&YRT) and the Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT) which are restored to pristine condition.
Saturdays 31st July and 14th & 28th August at 19.00
Departing from Oxenhope at 19.10, you can indulge yourself in a pre booked drinks package as you steam through Bronte country to Keighley station, where your fish and chips will be delivered to you in your seat.
While you enjoy your fish and chips the train will travel back to Oxenhope where you can stretch your legs before a return to Keighley where a band will be waiting so that you can either relax and enjoy the music, or dance the evening away on the platform.
At 10:40 you reboard the train and set off back to Oxenhope.
Saturday 31st July & 14th August (Brunch or Afternoon tea)
Enjoy a mouth watering brunch in a 1930’s Pullman parlour carriage, or afternoon tea if you prefer while you are taken on a steam powered trip through Worth Valley’s beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
With a short break in Keighley and Oxenhope this experience lasts for roughly 2 hours and 45 minutes.
