The Explore
I'd heard about these trains a few times but never managed to get around to popping over to see them.. seems like they are surplus from the railway museum just down the line from them. None the less it was something a bit different for our usual weekend outing :)

The History
As I don't really know where these trains came from I'll pop some info on the museum down the line from it, please if anyone knows anything further let me know.


The Midland Railway – Butterley lies on the Ambergate to Pye Bridge Line of the old Midland Railway, although the present-day heritage line terminates at Hammersmith. The line currently runs for 31⁄2 miles (5.6 km) from Hammersmith via Butterley, Swanwick Junction, and Riddings to Ironville. It is operated by the Midland Railway Trust.
