Dinting Railway Centre

Dinting Railway Centre

The Dinting Railway Centre was open between 1968 and 1990. The brick engine shed was built between 1888 and 1898 for the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway. The centre was run by the Bahamas Locomotive Society, who are based at  Ingrow on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. An old badge marks the connection between Dinting and the Society.

The photo of the centre above is undated, although another photo shows the same locomotive, the LNER 60532 Blue Peter, at Dinting in 1983.

  1. It’s a shame this museum area has been disused since 1990. A lot of decay has taken place in only 29 years! Nice to visit, though as a nature hike. Please try to preserve it!

  2. Reading through my spotting logs I recorded the following locomotives:
    4771 V2 2-6-2 ‘Green Arrow’ giving brake van rides
    532 A2 4-6-2 ‘Blue Peter’
    19 A4 4-6-2 ‘Bittern’
    1000 Midland 4-4-0 Compound
    6115 Royal Scot 4-6-0 ‘Scots Guardsman’
    5596 Jubilee 4-6-0 Bahamas
    102 O1(?) 2-8-0
    The date almost forty years ago was Monday May 7th 1979
