Every Sunday from the 9th June to the 14th July, Vintage Trains will operate on the KWVR using some of the 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 Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway and a variety of pre-nationalisation companies. 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. Coaches operated may belong to the Vintage Carriage Trust (VCT) or the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust (L&YRT).
The equally vintage steam locomotives, No. 85, built in 1899 for the Taff Vale Railway or 1054, built by the LNWR in 1888, are scheduled to haul these services in 2019.
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
