A TEA hut and tours have been introduced at the 'Railway Children' station.

Oakworth Station – on the Keighley & Worth Valley line – starred in the classic 1970 movie version of The Railway Children and in the recent sequel, The Railway Children Return.

Now visitors can enjoy a guided, behind-the-scenes tour – and a cuppa.

Oakworth Station first opened its doors in April, 1867, but closed when the branch line was shut by British Railways in 1962.

Preservationists stepped in to save the five-mile route, and it reopened in 1968.

The station tours will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Noel Hartley, the railway’s operations and business manager said: "Our railway – and particularly Oakworth Station – is back in the spotlight thanks to the release of The Railway Children Return, so we wanted to make sure that people visiting the station could be accommodated and have a new experience.

"We have always strived to keep Oakworth Station authentic and true to its roots. The tea shop being located in a new replica Midland Railway-type wooden building means Oakworth still has a fantastic heritage feel, with sympathetic modern facilities."

The Railway Children Return was premiered in Keighley earlier this month.
