Tickets are now available for a night of Transport & Steam, brought to you by the Friends of Pudsey Roller Group.

The group are holding a pie & pea supper alongside an illustrated talk by Philip Balmforth – a working volunteer from the Keighley & Worth Valley Line – on Thursday 8th November at 7:45pm in Farsley Liberal Club. Philip will be discussing the history of the branch line, its closure by British Railways, the reopening as a preserved line in 1968, and 50th reopening anniversary up to the present time.

The Pudsey Park steamroller was a hugely popular attraction for local children for a number of decades until it fell into disrepair and was removed in 1990. The group now aim to raise money to restore the Fowler steamroller back to it’s glory.
