The team from Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, in Wirksworth, won the Railcar of the Year Award after they restored the class 119 Diesel Multiple Unit.

Leigh Gration, team leader, said: “The class 119 is the only one of its class carrying passengers in preservation and I am very proud of the quality of work and dedication of the team.”
