Peak Rail -

G4EAN says "Peak Rail operates between Matlock (trains from Derby, change onto platform 2 at Matlock for Peak Rail) and Rowsley South".  


G4EAN says "The EVR is a delightful railway based in the lovely town of Wirksworth in the Peak District". The other end of the line is at Duffield (which is on the Derby - Sheffield line).  Definitely worth a visit. Do look at the live webcams on the site.


This is the web site for the volunteers who work on the E-V-R.
