Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway is a 9-mile long heritage railway in Derbyshire, the headquarters of the railway centre around Wirksworth station and services operate between Wirksworth and Duffield and Wirksworth and Ravenstor. From April 2011 passengers have been able to board and alight heritage services at Duffield where in recent years a station platform has been re-constructed. Heritage services are timed to connect with East Midlands Trains Derby to Matlock service at the adjacent Duffield Network Rail platforms. The key purpose is to provide convenience for passengers to travel to Wirksworth by train from anywhere on the national network as part of a "Community Railway" venture. Despite being a branch in itself, there is also a separate three quarter-mile branch operating from Wirksworth Station Platform 3 to Ravenstor on a 1 in 27 gradient incline. In the future the line will become one of only few heritage railways that can operate a whole branch line in its original form, this has been depicted with the marketing slogan: "The last perfect branch line."show more
