Peak Rail in England
, Matlock, Derbyshire, England,
Just over 4.5 miles of the old Manchester to London main line have been restored between Rowsley South station and Matlock Riverside.

Peak Rail welcomes you to journey back to a bygone age and experience the thrill of steam and diesel on our preserved railway, operating between Rowsley South and Matlock Platform 2 and open to the public throughout the year.

The line forms part of the old Midland Railway’s line between Manchester Central and London St Pancras which was closed in 1968.

Our northern terminus at Rowsley South Station is situated on the site of the former LMS/BR locomotive depot. Facilities include free car parking, a large buffet providing a selection of hot and cold light refreshments, homemade cakes and excellent bacon butties, gift shop selling a wide range of Thomas models, railway books, dvd’s, memorabilia, souvenirs, and a exhibition showing the history of the building of the railway by volunteers. From May - September the picnic area will be open where children can play with large out door games (subject to the weather) and other family members can relax whilst enjoying a cup of tea or ice cream from our snack bar.

At the picturesque gothic style station at Darley Dale trains stop in both directions. Whilst your waiting for a train you can explore the museum which depicts the history of the former Midland Railway line. ....
