Ambergate to Pye Bridge and Codnor Park (Midland Railway)

Stanton No. 24, an 0-4-0CT built by Andrew Barclay in 1925 stands in the open air at the Midland Railway Centre, Butterley, in April 1977. [Bill Jamieson]

Annesley Branch (Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway)

Aylesbury and Buckingham Railway
