They could see that there was a need to concentrate on the preservation of these historic items which were in grave danger of disappearing due to the weather and vandalism damage and unsuitability for regular use on preserved railways of the day.

The Trust owns the Museum of Rail Travel at Ingrow - the first station from Keighley on the Worth Valley Railway.
