On Saturday 26th November a special two part train is running to London.

Departing Wirksworth at 07.15 and Idridgehay at 07.33, it is running to Duffield where passengers will cross over to the main line platform where East Midlands Trains will make a special stop on one of their London express services, departing at 08.07 and arriving at London St. Pancras at 10.06.

The return service will depart London at 18.25, arrive Duffield at 20.25 and after a quick change of train, arrive Idridgehay at 20.42 and Wirksworth at 21.00.

There is one set of fares for all stations:  The Adult Standard Return will cost £58.00, with a First Class option at £88.00.  Child, Senior, Student and Disabled Railcard holders pay £41.00 Standard Class and £61.00 First.

This is a very exciting new development for all at Eclesbourne and it is hoped to be the first of many.  Thanks to the great team at East Midlands Trains, passengers from Wirksworth, Idridgehay and Duffield will be able to go Christmas shopping in London without having to use their cars!

Tickets are limited and are expected to sell very quickly.  If you would like to learn more or book on line, go to the website:  http://www.e-v-r.com
