Members Of The Steeple Grange Light Railway Visit Clayton Equipment

Established in 1985, the Steeple Grange Light Railway is an 18-inch gauge line, located near Wirksworth in Derbyshire. It is built on the trackbed of a branch of the old Cromford and High Peak Railway, which is now known as the High Peak Trail. Motive power is provided by ex-industrial diesel, battery-electric and petrol locomotives, and passengers are carried in an old National Coal Board manrider.

Russian Locomotive Repair & Refurbishment

Clayton Equipment was pleased to rescue one of our locomotives following an accident which threatened to make the machine an economic write off. The locomotive was extensively damaged whilst stationary and a four month long programme was implemented to return it to England, refurbish and repair the equipment to its original standard, and despatch the finished product back to Russia.
