The ever popular Midland Railway - Butterley has put on a week of spooks and scares this week for their Halloween extravaganza.

The railway has undergone a frightful transformation for the holiday season with staff decorating the buildings with all manner of Halloween themed props.

Alan Calladine, the Midland Railway Trust’s Development Officer said: “It’s a different way of attracting people to the Railway, albeit a bit gimmicky.

“It’s proven to be extremely popular with the children and we’ve seen plenty of people visit and get involved, 
especially over the weekend.”
