Recent issues from the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway

During 2014 the Keighley and Worth Valley railway expanded their range of postcards by a further three. These being:


WVR326 Morning preparations at Haworth Spring 2014

WVR327 “Big Jim” at Oxenhope station

WVR328 34092 City of Wells at Keighley autumn 2014.

All three postcards and many others, some first published 20 years ago, are available from the railway’s shops at Keighley, Haworth and Oxenhope. The shop at Haworth is the largest and also has a vast selection of books and models. These new cards reflect large locos now operational on the line rather than the line’s 1950’s BR (Midland) general ambiance. Well worth a visit.

Finally, for those of you that like technical details and errors card WV184 showing Haworth station is now available as WV284R2006.

Back in 2006 it was re-issued as WV184R2006 but it looks like a printing was made with the wrong number and this has now nine years later been put on sale.

Saltburn Cliff Railway

Saltburn has three railways operating during summer weekends, the Cliff railway, a miniature line and the standard gauge branch to Darlington. Saltburn standard gauge station today is of “bus shelter” design on a platform just to the west of the former station building which acts as a home to local retailers and a gateway to a supermarket. The local picture retailer at this site has a postcard for sale produced by featuring the cliff railway in 1984. Unfortunatey this is the only postcard featuring any of the railways to be found at any of the stations in Saltburn. Don’t be deterred, if you’ve not had rides on all these lines they each have unique features and merit a visit to this generally little known coastal resort.
