The Ashover Light Railway.
A new website for the rebirth of a Derbyshire heritage icon……..If you like what you see and would like to know more, why not join us and get involved with our fun and friendly Society. Further information on Membership, along with a downloadable Membership Form can be found by visiting the Membership page.
In 2015 ALRS volunteers moved locomotives, rolling stock and workshop equipment from our previous base in Sheffield to Peak Rails’ Rowsley site. Here we will soon erect a new workshop shed, complete with new sidings and facilities.
See more here……
This development will allow us to restore, renovate and maintain ALR compatible rolling stock at a location which is eminently suitable for a rapidly expanding heritage rail organisation.
There is a range of ALRS merchandise and gifts available for sale at both Rowsley and Matlock stations.
The latest addition to our sales is “THE ASHOVER LIGHT RAILWAY 1925-1950 – AN ILLUSTRATED PRESENTATION” which is available from our sales page, or from eBay.
Now also available, the 2017 ALRS Calendar, also available from our eBay site.
***** LATEST UPDATE*****
The ALRS Sales stand will be in attendance at the 50th Anniversary of the Rowsley Shed Closure, THIS SATURDAY 1/10/2016, at Peak Rails Rowsley Station. It would be great to see you there!!!
Apolgies for the lack of progress updates on the Website. There has been so much going off at the railway, I have not had much time to get a review together. This will be changing later this week when I’ll write a complete update. Keep an eye out!
