A plaque in the waiting room records the dedication of the rebuilt station (transported from Foulridge in Lancashire) by Lord Ingrow in 1989.
Keighley and Worth Valley Railway :: SE0335
The KWVR is a branch line off the former Midland Main Line at Keighley in West Yorkshire, terminating at Oxenhope near the head of the Worth Valley. The line opened in 1867, but along with many other branch lines closed in 1962. It was re-started by a preservation society in 1968, one of the first such ventures, and has been a tourist attraction ever since, helped by serving the "Bronte town" of Haworth.

Enough has been written elsewhere (including the Wikipedia entry LinkExternal link and the railway's official website LinkExternal link ) for there to be no need for further elaboration here.
