12 September 209 Ecclesbourne Valley Railway –John Hastings-Thomson

John gave a detailed and interesting talk on the restoration of the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway. He also related the history of the line and it’s use placing the same in the context of social history of the area. A huge project over many years owes a lot to a number of volunteers including our own Chris Beale. The fundraising has been on a large scale and the restoration is impressive and of a superior quality.

The line is now used by many thousands of people on an annual basis and a number of themed events take place”                                                                                                  IT
