Two brothers achieved a bucket list wish come true when they traveled from Middleton Top to Parsley Hay to mark the 50th anniversary of the last steam train to do this journey. Their father, Sam Buckley, was the driver of this last train in April 1967 and was described as “a railwayman of rare quality”. Middleton Top to Parsley Hay is now part of the High Peak Trail. In 1967 it was a section of the Cromford and High Peak Railway manned by Middleton trainmen.
