Next Open Day

Every Saturday (11:30-15:00)

The Wirksworth Miniature Railway (WMR) is a 7 1/4 miniature railway located at the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway (EVR) in Derbyshire operated throughout the year by dedicated volunteers and railway enthusiasts.


The railway operates on most Saturdays between July - October, and other selected days, such as Ecclesbourne Valley Railway Special Events.(Ecclesbourne Valley Railway Website


We currently operate a short line, totaling to around 170 meters. Our railway runs parallel with EVR's mainline - offering a unique view of the DMU's, Rolling Stock, and Desiel Locomotives which operate the Branch Line between Wirksworth and Duffield.


We're constantly working on our railway's extension, which when finished will offer over a 1/2 mile return trip! Once completed the railway will terminate at a station next to a foot crossing on the EVR, where passengers can go for a 'stroll' over Derbyshire's wonderful country hills, and then return on a later train.


Why not take a look at our running days, on our EVENTS page, and plan your next visit!
