Then for good measure a real rarity as on Sunday 14 April 2013 Battle of Britain Class 4-6-2 No 34067 Tangmere is scheduled to bring The Peak Forester from London Kings Cross to Matlock and Rowsley via the Peak Rail heritage railway. It's not very often we have the chance to see one of these locomotives hauling charter trains on the main line this far north
