Took our four year old grandson on this heritage line and thoroughly enjoyed it all...except the weather!
Picked up the train at Duffield..plenty of car parking through the gate at end of road..and took our picnic with us to eat in Wirksworth. Make sure you make use of the toilet before travelling as there's not one on the train.
Very picturesque trip through Derbyshire is short enough for young ones not to get bored.
We had intended to spend a couple of hours in Wirksworth but,after a very cold picnic at the station, decided to make the best of it and return on the same train.
All in all we enjoyed the experience and intend to return when it's warmer.
