Ecclesbourne Valley Railway
A Great Way to Spend a Day
With its headquarters in the fine old Peak District market town of Wirksworth, the Ecclesboume Valley line, at nine miles, is Derbyshire’s longest heritage railway. The line runs through some of the most pleasant scenery in the White Peak, from its joint station with the main line at Duffield to its northern terminus at Ravenstor, close to the High Peak Trail and the National Stone Centre.
The line provides services mainly operated by heritage diesel railcars, with four trains a day on summer weekends and on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in the high summer.
The timetable is designed to connect with East Midlands Trains’ services to and from Derby and Nottingham. Steam hauled services are also operated at peak periods, please call us to check what is running.
If you would prefer to see the line from the driver’s cab or realise a childhood dream by taking the controls of one of our heritage steam or diesel locomotives, then you can book that day to remember direct on our website. We offer a range of experiences to suit any occasion and budget.
