Classic Bus & Coach Rally 2022


Welcome to the 11th Classic Bus and Coach Rally at Wirksworth Station. We have a display of vintage vehicles on display at Wirksworth Station and of course, our steam and diesel railcar trains will be playing their part. A small number of vintage bus rides are also planned to allow passengers to interchange between the bus and the train at Duffield Station. Why not go one way on the train and the other on the bus?

The Station Cafe at Wirksworth, The Apollo Bar, museum and gift shops will also be open to make an interesting summer Sunday.

Car Parking

The display of buses will be located in the car park at Wirksworth Station. We are very grateful to Richard Lester Transport for allowing us to use the yard directly opposite the station entrance for overflow car parking for this event.
