REGIONAL NEWS: Keighley and Worth Valley Railway announces new journey with a spicy twist
Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is traditionally used to delighting passengers with glorious views of the Yorkshire countryside, but now is branching out into culinary delights.
The Keighley Korma train will be operating on two extra special journeys this summer, treating passengers to drinks, live entertainment and a selection of currys provided by some of Keighley’s leading Indian restaurants.
The evening will begin at Oxenhope where your train will be in the platform for 7pm ready for you to board. There will be two ‘Real Ale’ bars selling a wide selection of alcoholic drinks and soft drinks, along with tea and coffee. The evening is suitable for children aged 5 and over, so the whole family can get involved.
The train will depart from Oxenhope at 7:30pm and make its way to Keighley where the food will arrive, brought fresh and hot to the train from a local Indian restaurant. There will be a choice of curries available, including meat and vegetarian options in a range of spices.
Once the curry has been served the train will return non-stop to Oxenhope before returning to Keighley for approx 21.20 where live music will be provided by a local band. Passengers will be encouraged to alight from the train and enjoy a boogie on the platform and work off the curry! Don’t worry if the typical British summer tries to ruin the evening as there’s a canopy at Keighley and you will be undercover – no reason not to get your dancing shoes on!
The train will then depart Keighley at 10:40pm and return to Oxenhope for approx. 23.10 where the evening will end. So why not try something new, and enjoy your curry on the move for once!
The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is a preserved standard gauge line which joins the national railway network at Keighley and runs 5-miles up the valleys of the River Worth and Bridgehouse Beck to Oxenhope. The Railway is perhaps most famous for its role in the 1970 film version of Edith Nesbit’s story The Railway Children.
