After passing through Derby a couple of times recently i thought it was high time i visited this iconic hub of the railway network, and i was not disappointed. As Derby is home to the Network Rail fleet which monitors and records the state of the railway network i was of course hoping/expecting to see something and i did indeed see the track recording train. You can see my photos here.
I stayed mostly at the station but did venture out, including down to the river Derwent. It was all a bit cold to venture too far though, but i'll be back!
