The Staffordshire Moorlands heritage railway

A Staffordshire Moorlands heritage railway has confirmed it will not be running its regular service until the end of November after flooding damaged a stretch of track.

The Caldon Canal was breached following heavy rain between Friday October 25 and Saturday October 26 – affecting around 100 feet of track on the Churnet Valley Railway (CVR), some of which has been left suspended in mid-air.

The flooding led to the cancellation of the railway’s planned Super Power Saturday event – which was the first of a series of planned fundraisers aiming to raise £1m to reconnect the railway to Leek.

Following a meeting with morning, the CVR said regular trains would not be running until Saturday November 30 – with the railway planning to run its Christmas Santa and Steam event on schedule.
