October Down the Valley

Dear all,

A few exciting announcements for October.

Firstly (and only by date, not by excitement factor), we are pleased to announce an additional service on the Saturday of the Model Railway Exhibition Weekend (15th October). This service will depart Wirksworth at 18:20 and return from Duffield at 19:10 allowing visitors with ordinary tickets to travel home from the event. However, this service will also be our first Fish and Chip Special service on the Duffield line.

Advanced booking is essential and should be done by e-mail to this address: . Please include your name, contact number and the number of people you would like to book, then indicate whether you would like Sausage and Chips or Fish, Chips and Peas (these are the only two options available). Tickets cost £5.00 each including the food on top of an ordinary ticket payable on the day. Bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis and are open to all.

The food will be ordered in the afternoon and will be freshly cooked by Town Street Fish Bar of Duffield. This is the first time we have tried this in this format so why not come along and try it?

Secondly, the timetables for the Class 33 Debut Weekend on 22nd/23rd October (along with information on the above) are available on the website now at . We have a special timetable in operation on the Sunday to allow 33035 to run some services on the 1 in 27 Ravenstor incline.
