In March 2017, the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway are running a special train from Oxenhope to Carlisle (hauled by Flying Scotsman) and return.

Flying Scotsman and its Railtour is to celebrate the reopening of the Settle & Carlisle line, which was close in February 2016 after a landslide shut the line.

Flying Scotsman will run from Oxenhope (On the KWVR) to Carlisle via Haworth, Oakworth, Ingrow West, Keighley, Skipton, Settle, Ribblehead and Carlisle.
