Ecclesbourne Valley Railway Ghost Train

Location : Wirksworth Station Station Road Coldwell Street Wirksworth DE4 4FB

Many years ago a dark spell was cast across the Ecclesbourne Valley, making it become overgrown and free of all trains. But of course, you already know that part!

What is less known but arguably more legendary is a group of friends known as the “The Spooky Society”. Once a year, every year, these monsters would gather in a celebration of Halloween. They would tell stories of their past, sing songs and celebrate everything spooky. That is until one year when the party was interrupted.

The monster heard a large roar coming through the trees. They ran in fear of what kind of monster was coming after them. It was big. Green. And….full of humans. The monsters watched and realised that a bigger monster hadn’t in fact come to get them but rather the trains had returned. This made the monsters worried that the valley was no longer safe for them. However, as a gesture of goodwill, the railway offered to be a safe space for them by running a private train each year just for them. Some of the more scary monsters hated this idea. They hated humans and trains. The nicer monsters still took the railway up on its offer.

This year however is going to be a bit different. You see our countryside friends, Mr tickets and Prez are scared of all things spooky so they have taken a holiday. But who could possibly run this train? Maybe the person who made this valley a safe space for these monsters to begin with? Yes, thats right! The dark fairy herself, Wyverness. Can Wyverness finally find a way to be good and help this Halloween gathering go smoothly? Or will ghosts of the railway’s past return and pull Wyverness further into the darkness.
