Details

Vintage Trains will operate using some of our older locomotives and coaches, many of which date back to Victorian times and rarely see public use.

These carriages form part of the Railway’s museum collection and include examples from the Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT) and the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Club Coach (1st Class Supplement applies). They have been beautifully restored and opportunities to travel in them are very rare indeed. Many of them have even featured in film and TV period drama productions.

The equally vintage Steam Locomotive No. 1054 (pictured above), hauled services in 2014 and is scheduled to haul these services again in 2015. Built at Crewe in 1888 for the London & North Western Railway, this locomotive, owned by the National Trust, was restored by the Ingrow-based Bahamas Locomotive Society.

All of these services are in addition to our usual steam train services which will continue as normal. There’s no need to pre-book your tickets – just purchase them on the day of travel

On each occasion of the Vintage Train, there will be a Brass Band at Oxenhope to add to the atmosphere.
