On this day in 1867
"A platform at Damems was ordered to be made 30 yards long and 2 yards broad."

On this day in 1902
"I am instructed by the board to state that the permission to close the school on Thursday and Friday next is withdrawn, and the schools will open as usual on these days (26th June and 27)" this is in consequence of the Coronation festivities having been postponed indefinitely - the King having undergone operation for "appendicitis"
Extract from Stanbury school log book

On this day in 2008
Ann Crier MP and President of the KWVRPS put down an Early Day Motion in Parliament congratulating 40 years of steam in the Worth Valley:

That this House congratulates the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway Preservation Society on 40 years of operating a safe, reliable and magnificent heritage railway from Keighley to Oxenhope in West Yorkshire, formerly the West Riding; recognises that the society has organised the running of its railway on democratic principles, which has meant that those members who do the work also make the decisions; remembers with great affection the two founder members of the society, the late Bob Cryer MP and the late Ralph Povey, who had the foresight, imagination and tenacity to call a public meeting following closure by British Railways in 1962 and then pushed forward the formation of the society and subsequently its operating company; wishes also to remember with gratitude the very many society members who have devoted a considerable part of their lives giving their time, skills and energy to volunteering on the Worth Valley Railway which will remain a wonderful and lasting memorial to all; and recognises however that were a further memorial needed then doubtless it would be the 1970 feature film, The Railway Children, all of the location work taking place on or near the line and the three steam locomotives used being the true stars of this much loved film.
