Oakworth (Keighley Worth Valley Railway Module Layout)

Prototype – This module is both a tribute to the classic EMI film of 1970 directed by Lionel Jeffries and to the early Keighley & Worth Valley Railway; combining as it does my love of early preservation railways and the childhood experience of the film.

  

The module is an accurate depiction of the KWVR’s Oakworth Station during the filming. Permission has been granted to use some of the audio from the film to accompany a few of the train movements used in the film.

     

These are however only a small part of the train operations that the module offers including some of the famous trains from the 1962 Special before the society took hold of the line, to the re-opening special in 1968, to the running of the first restored locomotive from Barry Scrapyard.
