Dr Matthew Stroh, Chairman at the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, told RailAdvent: “Being so near the reopening after the disappointment of the sudden closure is fantastic. It’s testimony to the great team effort needed to prepare the railway for operation in very trying circumstances, particularly with the challenge of having to recommence the work to replace the 115-year old bridge.”
“We are looking forward to welcoming our passengers on board in the coming weeks and to bringing steam back to the Worth Valley.”
