    The website of Peak/rail DDNGR says the narrow gauge line is closed until further notice. Anyone have any ideas why?

    initially i believe it was due to ilness,Henry had a bad spell not long back, I know the Ashover light railway folks have been doing sterling work on the new shed footings,base as well as work upon the locomotives on site,ive bumped into them a good number of times in all weathers working hard, theres a picture of the shedbase footings over on the Peak Rail blog on the Heritage railways forum of Nat Pres

    In the Peak Rail annual report thread it has been posted Henry's widow has put up the rolling stock for sale, except for one loco to be renamed Henry, and sold the track to Peak Rail, so perhaps the Ashover light railway society will be able to use it to run trains?

    Does anybody know what happened to the 40hp Simplex (MR 3663) that was at the DDNGR?
