Now government guidelines regarding coronavirus have eased we have resumed public running. We are also taking bookings for birthday parties again.

Usually, during the winter we do not run trains but take the opportunity to do repairs and improvements. When we realised we were not going to be able to run for some time we decided to do some major improvements to the track. You can see our activities by following this link to Major Track Upgrade 2020 - 2021.

We look forward to your visit to the KDMES. You will find our railway track at the Marley Activity Centre in Keighley, just off the A650 dual carriageway. We have free parking situated behind the club house. Click here for map/directions.

Station area at Marley summer 2021 Our trains are hauled by electric or real steam locomotives. The engines are capable of hauling adult passengers as well as children on coaches that are designed so that you sit astride the track. This saves the strain on the driver's back.
The railway track is approximately 400m in an oval shape. One journey is usually twice round. There is a viewing area where you can watch the locomotives being prepared and a seating area between the station and the club house. Refreshments are available to purchase in the club house.
We look forward to welcoming you in 2022.

James thumbs up Visitors to the railway track are welcome to cross the line by the footbridge to watch the trains go around the track. As well as the passengers having fun, we enjoy driving the engines and giving rides. Yeo and family
