Keighley and Worth Valley Railway

48431 entering Mytholmes tunnel.The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Line was built in 1867 by local mill owners. British Rail closed the branch in 1962. The Line reopened in 1968 and has been owned, operated and managed entirely by volunteer members of the Keighley & Worth Valley Preservation Society ever since.

The Railway Children, 1969/1970 EMI production starring Jenny Agutter considered to be the best produced film of E Nesbit's story, was filmed at the railway. Most of the filming was done at Oakworth Station.

One of the locations used in the film was Mytholmes Tunnel, for the paper chase and landslide scene. The tunnel is 75 yards long but was not long enough for the film so a temporary extension to the tunnel was made using canvas covers.
