If you are travelling on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, ask for a Day Rover Ticket which includes admission to the Museum of Rail Travel, admission to Ingrow Loco Museum and a day's unlimited travel on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. Day Rover tickets are available at our Museum, also at any Worth Valley Railway Station (when staffed).
DAY ROVER tickets are currently suspended during the pandemic.
Our vehicles are sometimes loaned to other railway preservation societies and film companies and not all our stock may therefore be present at the time of your visit. Details of VCT carriages and locomotives on loan elsewhere are usually on our news pages, but if intending to visit to view a particular vehicle it would be worth enquiring first. Occasionally, special events held by the Worth Valley Railway may involve the use of Ingrow yard and/or our vehicles. If your visit coincides with one of the Ingrow Yard special events, please inform the Worth Valley Railway attendant that you would like to visit our Museum.
The Trust is very pleased to open its archives and allow access to the stored collection for research purposes. However, not all of the Collection is on display or on site and a volunteer from VCT would have to be present . It is therefore essential that any visits are pre booked and must be during the opening hours of 11am to 4pm. Please contact the Hon Curator, via the Trustís email or postal address to make any arrangements.
