What are the DWVRT’s Charitable Aims?
“To obtain, restore, preserve and operate a representative collection of heritage railway buildings, structures, rolling stock and artefacts for use by, exhibition to and for the education of the public in the infrastructure, management and the operation of railways between Ambergate and Buxton in the County of Derbyshire.”
The Charity’s Priorities are
Darley Dale Station
We have already funded repairs to the down platform wall and temporary platform surfacing. We have also paid for the Midland railway lamp posts that have been erected on the down platform
and for the new Midland Railway style wooden fencing along the
rear of the platform.
The Trust has acquired the the original CI Footbridge. This will be restored and put back in its original position spanning the track at Darley Dale Station.
The trust also owns a railway coach that is planned to be restored to running order during 2014/2016. Funding for this project is in place.
The trust owns a former Midland Railway signal box that has been restored. It is now in place at Matlock Riverside. It will be in full working order in 2015 and completes the Matlock project opened in 2011, by our partner organisation, Peak Rail.
