LMS 3286 Kitchen Car (later track recording coach) built 1924This page is a part of the Herritage Railways Carriage Survey project and is hosted on the internet by The Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT), a volunteer body, based on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway in the United Kingdom.

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 Collection held by the Trust is at present nine historic railway carriages, also three small industrial steam locomotives, and a collection of railway posters and other miscellaneous railway items. The Trust owns the Museum of Rail Travel at Ingrow - the first station from Keighley on the Worth Valley Railway. By three phases of building work over the last ten years this has developed into a large museum display and associated workshop, and is the Trustís headquarters. Although the building is named a
