Classic Bus & Coach Rally 2023

Own a classic bus? We are still looking for more vehicles to attend the event, including some which may offer rides. Please click here to attend.


Welcome to the 12th 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 trains will be playing their part.

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. This will make parking tighter than usual. Passengers arriving by car may wish to begin their journey at Duffield and come to Wirksworth by train.

  • Bristol RELH6L 1974
  • AEC Regal III 1953
