Two veteran British steam locomotives are visiting a North Derbyshire railway attraction – before returning to their current homes in North America.

Class A4 locomotives Dominion of Canada and Dwight D Eisenhower – which used to ply their trade on the East Coast Main Line between London and Scotland, via Doncaster – will be appearing at Barrow Hill Roundhouse, Staveley, before heading back to their respective museums in Canada and the USA.

The East Coast Giants event featuring the locomotives – pictured at the National Railway Museum in York with famous sister engine Mallard – will be on Saturday and Sunday, February 8-9, from 10am to 4pm. Entry on the day is £13.50 for adults.
