VIDEO: Buxton Spa Express steams into town

Waiting for Video...

The Buxton Spa Express steamed into Buxton on Saturday afternoon.

Hauled by two black steam locomotives, 44871 and 45231 (The Sherwood Forester), the train arrived in the spa town at around 1pm.

Following its early-morning departure from London, the rail excursion had passed through the Midlands, Chesterfield and Dronfield, before travelling along the Hope Valley Line to Chinley, and then via Peak Forest, Great Rocks and Topley Pike to Buxton.

The return journey two hours later saw the train retrace its steps as far as Chinley, rejoining the Hope Valley Line and passing through New Mills Central towards Stockport.
