Derby 175 - Etches Park Open Day
2014 marked 175 years since the railway arrived in Derby. Numerous events were held throughout the year, including this one organised by East Midlands Trains, who opened the doors to the Etches Park Maintenance Depot. The LMSCA were invited to attend and put on a display in conjunction with the Ivatt Diesel Recreation Society and Peak Rail. This was the first time the public had been invited into the depot and gave them an opportunity to view the trains past and present as well as some of the activities that are undertaken.
