On track for a grand day out

Have your say

HERITAGE rail enthusiasts are laying on trains for families to have a day out at the end of the festive holidays.

Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, based at Wirksworth, near Matlock, ran New Year trains yesterday and is also putting on services tomorrow along its route through the Derbyshire Dales.

Visitors can book online via the railway’s website.

There will be three return trips during the day and the railway will then operate every Saturday through January and into February.

Tickets cost £9 for adults, £8 for concessions, £5 for children or £23 for a family of two adults and up to three children.
