17 remarkable retro photos of trains in Derbyshire - including steam locomotives, Britain's first diesel, the Flying Scotsman and the Green Arrow

We’re going back in time with 17 vintage photos of trains and stations from Derbyshire’s railway heritage.

Photos include probably the world’s most popular steam locomotive, the Flying Scotsman at the Barrow Hill Roundhouse reopening in 2017.

Another photo shows the impressive engine steaming through Chesterfield in 1973.

Also pictured is Great Longstone railway station which closed in 1962. One train a day in each direction stopped at the station to allow resident Mrs Boardman, a hospital sister, to travel to work in Buxton.
