The Museum of Rail Travel is a museum at Ingrow West railway station – on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway – that has a collection of vintage train carriages from the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT), which operates the museum, has provided railway carriages for use in over 70 films and television programmes.

What to see at the Museum of Rail Travel

The Museum of Rail Travel is split between two main buildings, the Engine Shed and the Carriage Works.

The Engine Shed features the museum’s two steam locomotives, Nunlow and Tiny.

The Carriage Works houses a number of historic railway carriages dating from the 1870s to the 1950s. Visitors to the museum can view the maintenance workshop from the upper gallery. The Carriage Works also includes the museum’s Magazine Room, which has a collection of historic railway magazines.

Visiting the Museum of Rail Travel

The Museum of Rail Travel is next to Ingrow West railway station on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. This is in Ingrow, around 1.6km (1 mile) south of Keighley town centre.

Admission is free if you have a rover ticket for the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and most people who visit the museum arrive by train on the historic railway. However, it is also possible to visit independently and several bus routes stop outside the museum, including buses 67, 502, B1, B2, B3, K10 and K15.

Both the ground and upper floors of the museum are wheelchair accessible.

The museum features a gift shop that also sells ice creams and hot and cold drinks.
