The Wirksworth Miniature Railway is a 7 1/4" gauge railway being built and operated from the end of Platform 1 at Wirksworth Station. The line runs alongside the big railway and is gradually being extended with the grand aim of reaching The Hannages foot crossing, around 1/3 of a mile away. This sit on railway uses a variety of steam and battery-operated locomotives and can be enjoyed by all the family.
The Miniature Railway is normally open on Saturdays through the season as well as at other selected special events, 11:00 until 15:00.
You can enjoy two rides along the line for just £1.00 for adults and £0.50 for children. Rides are operated on a turn-up-and-go basis.
