Derwent Valley Light Railway museum

Derwent Valley Light Railway museum


Murton, United Kingdom (GB)
The museum lies on the trackbed of the Derwent Valley Light Railway - a privately-owned standard-gauge railway which ran from Layerthorpe on the outskirts of York to Cliffe Common near Selby. This closed in 1981, but a small section has been restored as part of the museum. It opened in 1993, and incorporates a station building formerly located at Wheldrake. There is approximately 0.75 miles (1.21 km) of track running along the original trackbed towards York.
