THIRSTY passengers can take part in the first-ever Steam and Ale Trail on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

They can stop off at each station on the five-mile-long line to sample Yorkshire ale from a selection of local breweries.

There will be more than 40 beers to choose from, and special bars hosted by individual breweries, including Old Spot, Goose Eye and Bridgehouse.

The Real Cider Company will also sell its wares at each station, and there will be wine and Railway Children-themed cocktails. Trains will also have a bar.

The event, running during the Spring Bank weekend from May 28 to 30, has developed from the railway’s popular Beer and Music Festival, which is held each October.

Catering will be available at Ingrow, Haworth and Oxenhope stations.

Early bird discounts are available for people booking in advance by calling 01535 645214. Visit for more details about prices and timetables.
