Ecclesbourne Valley Railway launches the Rainy Day Guarantee to keep the skies clear!

The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway is excited to announce its unique rainy day guarantee. During the months of May, June, July and August. Should it rain continuously for three hours or more during a visit to the railway, passengers will qualify for a free ticket to return when the weather has improved.
Tom Tait the Railway’s Commercial Director said, “The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway is Derbyshire’s longest heritage line and the beautiful views of this unspoiled valley are best experienced by train during sunny weather. We want our visitors to enjoy the wonderful vistas during their visit to the railway. Not only do we offer the best of Derbyshire scenery but we are so lucky to have an abundance of wildlife which can be normally be seen from our trains but unfortunately are more difficult to spot when it’s raining.”
If the weather prevents passengers from delighting in the Ecclesbourne Valley at its best, we will be offering our visitors free return tickets.

Full details of the offer are published on the Railway’s website at e-v-r.com
