Our Facilities

Our line starts at Wirksworth, a modern-looking terminus station with three active platform faces.

Wirksworth Station

The station is well-suited to set dressing and is often used in combination with modern rolling stock.

Wirksworth station yard incorporates extensive hardstanding areas providing secure parking for road and rail vehicles.

Services include:

The line has stunning rural views

Idridgehay and Shottle

Between Wirksworth and Duffield, lie the charming rural stations of Idridgehay and Shottle. Idridgehay opened to passengers in 2008 and Shottle in 2012.

Both stations have the feel of rural branch line stations of forty or fifty years ago.

Idridgehay Station has the original station building as private residence

Shottle has been used for filming a documentary about the railway. As can be seen, the station is well-suited to period dramas.


Our southern terminus at Duffield was refurbished and opened in 2011. It provides a junction with the main line and offers filming opportunities with high-speed and heavy freight trains passing nearby.
