DISCOVER THE MAGIC OF STEAM AND EXPERIENCE A GREAT DAY OUT FOR ALL THE FAMILY
Whether it’s simply a nostalgic journey back to a bygone age or a discovery of the sights and sounds for very first time of a steam or diesel locomotive Peak Rail welcomes you to experience the thrill of our preserved railway whilst travelling through the delightful Derbyshire countryside.
The line forms part of the old Midland Railway line between Manchester Central and London St Pancras which was closed in 1968. We currently operate on approximately 4 miles between Rowsley South Station and Matlock Platform 2.
As well as our normal train journeys, there is something for everyone to enjoy, luxury dining is available on our Palatine Restaurant Car which offers Sunday Lunches, Christmas Lunches, Afternoon or Cream Teas and operates on various days during the year.
A whole host of various special events take place throughout the year perfect for all the family or enthusiast.
Why not treat yourself or a family member to one of our very popular Steam Experience driving courses.
We hope to greet you as a visitor during 2020 – you are assured a friendly Derbyshire Welcome.
WHAT’S ON TODAY
The Buxton to Ambergate Railway Quiz
The Derwent and Wye Valley Railway Trust and The Peak Railway Association have combined forces to put together a railway quiz in these testing times. However, we hope you have a bit of fun doing it, and that you enjoy the challenge. You may even learn one or two new things about the history of the line, and the organisations invloved in preserving our railway heritage.

David Lathrope (DWVRT) and Roger Hallatt (PRA).
The answers (as we understand them) will be published on Monday 11th May 2020, but if you have any feedback on the quiz for the DWVRT or the PRA, please let us have it at email@example.com by Friday 8th May 2020.
