The Keighley & Worth Valley Light Railway Through the Years Part 1: The 20th Century (Mainline & Maritime)

1 In Stock

In the world of railway preservation, the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway was one of the pioneering lines that helped to galvanise a public desire in the 1960s to save some of the UK’s rapidly disappearing railway heritage. Closed by BR in 1962, the five-mile line re-opened as a preservation project in 1968 and quickly developed as a significant tourist attraction of huge value to the local economy.

The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Through the Years Part 1: The 20th Century is an album of colour photographs, showcasing the achievements of this popular preserved line. The images are taken by well known photographers and KWVR volunteers, Dave and Ben Collier.

Many different locomotive types are illustrated, including those from the home-based fleet and visitors, including some rare examples taken in the early years of operation. The images are presented in one or two-per-page format. 80 pages.
