Background of Haworth Train Station
Haworth Train Station is the largest of all the train stations of the Keighley and Worth Valley train stations. It has an interesting Victorian architecture which is typical of this period and has been maintained exceptionally, which makes it a popular destination for trainspotters and history buffs alike.
Due to its status as a tourist destination, the original waiting room has been converted into a shop, which sells all manner of related merchandise to visitors. It also serves as the centre for any maintenance work which needs to be carried out on the locomotives. The main workshop is now based in what was once the goods yard, a little down the road from the station itself.
When the railway began life, it was built with a double track, with bridges wide enough to allow for a second line to be added at a later date. This was only completed between Keighley and the junction with the line north of Ingrow.
