(1) A special service run in conjunction with the Well Dressing Ceremonies held at Wirksworth over this weekend. One of the prototype Met-Cam class 151 DMU's was in use on this day (confirmation is required which one, 151001 or 151002, and if this worked all services; undated photos exist of 151002 carrying the headboard so it is known to have also worked on either 24th, 25th or 26th May at some stage). Six round trips were booked to be made. Connecting coach excursions were also available to the Cromford & High Peak Railway sites also.
