Footage featuring Engine no.72. Engine no.72 can be seen between March and October running between Peak Rail’s three stations in the Derbyshire Dales, Rowsley South, Darley Dale and Matlock. There’s also a Santa Special running every weekend and everyday during the Christmas holidays. There are extra trains during the February half term and special events with guest locomotives all throughout the spring and summer season.
Footage background: We have kindly been donated some photos and video footage by Mr John Hilton. In total there was 46 minutes of footage. So we’ve edited the footage into 15 films, which we are going to release over the coming weeks.
When we have released all 15 excerpts we will publish the final unedited video as produced and supplied by John.
We’d love to receive more old footage and/or photos of days and events gone by at Peak Rail that we can then share by adding it to our YouTube Channel. This we hope will help to preserve history and help us all remember days gone by.
