The Golden Valley Light Railway is a 610 mm (24ins) narrow gauge railway and normally operates on selected mid-week dates; all weekends and Bank Holidays throughout the season from April to late October.
The running line is almost a mile in length and operates as one of a number of attractions at the Midland Railway - Butterley, Nr. Ripley, Derbyshire. Steam and diesel hauled trains run through the Country Park and terminate at Newlands Inn Station, which overlooks the disused Cromford Canal.
The GVLR has started an appeal
to fund the construction
of a New Carriage Shed
