Itinerary

Description

All aboard! Take your seats behind the iconic Green Dragon, the famous Victorian locomotive which starred in The Railway Children. We enjoy an exclusive journey on the heritage Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, travelling through breathtaking landscapes of heather and windswept moors on a railway that has become synonymous withthe iconic 1970s film!

During our five-mile round trip, we take a break at the Edwardian-style, Oakworth Station, which featured in both the 1970 original and 2022 sequel, the Railway Journey. To make our day even more magical, on board the Green Dragon we are treated to a talk by Graham Mitchell, who played the train guard, and Chris Witty, who played the Boy in the Red Jersey, sharing with us behind-the-scenes facts and fun stories on set during the filming of the 70s classic.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area, we travel by coach to York where we spend the afternoon at leisure. From hitting the shops to exploring the museums, there is plenty to do before we head to our hotel for dinner and our overnight stay.

Day 2

Following breakfast at the hotel, we head to the charming village of Oxenhope. Here we are met by a brass band on the platform and climb aboard our heritage steam train on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway for a nostalgic journey in the company of the famous Green Dragon, newly repainted in the original black of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway. During our journey, we are treated to a talk by Graham Mitchell and Chris Witty from the original 1970s The Railway Children.

As we meander through stunning countryside to Keighley, soak up the delightful sights and sounds of steam travel on the railway made famous by The Railway Children. Enjoy a delicious Yorkshire snack or hot drink when we alight at Oakworth for a break mid-journey. When we return to Oxenhope, goody bags and souvenirs in hand, we re-board the coach for our journey home.
