Full Description

The Railway is a community-owned and locally-managed venture to reopen and operate the railway between Wirksworth and Duffield in Derbyshire.
We operate tourist passenger services between Wirksworth and Duffield (8.5 miles) and Ravenstor (½ mile up a 1 in 27 incline) using Diesel Multiple Units and steam on special days. The section of line between Idridgehay and Duffield opened in April 2011, a culmination of 10 years hard work on the part of our dedicated volunteer force.
