Indietracks is a unique summer festival which combines heritage trains and indiepop music, and is located in the Derbyshire countryside. Guests are free to enjoy the regular facilities of the Midland Railway Butterley such as the steam train rides and museum, and enjoy a range of new and established indiepop bands.
The Indietracks Festival is a fundraiser which raises money for the Midland Railway Trust. Read on to find out a bit of history about the charity and the railway!
The Midland Railway
The Midland Railway, Butterley is the home for all the things related to the Midland Railway. There is a standard gauge line which has steam and diesel hauled passenger trains. The main site at Swanwick has a museum devoted to the Midland Railway as well as a large collection of steam and diesel locomotives. It is a day out for the whole family with model and miniature railways and a country park as well as a host of other attractions.
