Haworth Railway Station

Haworth railway station opened in 1867 along with the rest of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, and closed in 1962. It re-opened with the preservation of the line in 1968 and now serves as the headquarters of the railway. The former goods shed in the railway yard has been expanded into the locomotive shed for the railway providing facilities for the storage, maintenance and overhaul of the locomotives on the line.

The line frequently operates steam trains, but the day I was there they were having a Diesel Gala Day.
