The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model.

A proper paint job.
When I first visited the KWVR in the early Seventies LMS Class 2 2-6-2T No.41241 was painted all red in a KWVR livery and looked awful. It was therefore very pleasing to see her on my next visit repainted in black and she put in a great performance up Haworth bank as I returned behind her from Keighley. April 1980.
