C 1980’s Living in Leeds at the time it was a straight forward journey to Keighley for a day on the railway ( the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway ) in West Yorkshire. I was a member for a short while, had a line side pass, and was able to access several locations along the line during that day.

This image was taken from the bridge leading to the Main Street and Haworth Parsonage with which many people will be familiar.

The sloping decent to the station on the right is giving more interest to the painting rather than just the train starting off. Many former passengers are still on the platform including a fellow photographer.

The engine, ex L M S and British Rail, has a power, Class 5. It was a mixed traffic locomotive (passenger or freight ). They were very rarely given a name ( except in preservation ) and were always BLACK.
