Dawn 'til Dusk: The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway In Winter

21 locomotives tackling the line's infamous gradients in the best of winter weather.

INTRODUCTION

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is long-established as one of Britain’s finest heritage railways, having remained intact following closure in 1962, and developing into perhaps the most complete and atmospheric branch line in the country. Winter is arguably the best time to experience its unique charms, and this film showcases a wide variety of resident and visiting locomotives at work on the line’s challenging gradients, from Dawn‘til Dusk, between December and April. The material was shot over an 8-year period, and is previously unreleased. On-screen captions provide details of locomotives and dates; there is no commentary, enabling the engines to do their own talking.
