Burly volunteers showed their might by pulling a train in aid of charity.

The team from Derby’s Network Rail branch took part in a train pull challenge at Ecclesbourne Valley Railway, in Wirksworth, in aid of Sport Relief.

The team of 28 participants hauled 27 tonne ‘Iris the Railcar’ for approximately 500 yards uphill into Wirksworth Station to the cheers of a packed platform of well wishers.
