I know this is the beginning of the season but what a disappointment . the drive to the rowsley station start was muddy with pot holes , at least the parking was free. the train was about to go so bought a return ticket because of the car . we picked a carriage with a corridor and sliding doors , looking round I thought strange there seems to be lots of flies at the windows then noticed a lot more in the corridor windows much to the delight of a toddler who was trying to count them , this many flies says to me a animal body somewhere and the maggots had turned to flies yuk . the rest of the carriage could have done with a clean ,the windows had been rubbed over with a dirty cloth and were filthy. the journey was slow and uninteresting and the approach to matlock riverside area was terrible it looked like a dump with bricks, rocks ,rubbish etc not a good view for visitors into the station, there is a mail line as well going into matlock station, council please take note . perhaps there is no more money to spend on the herritage line and the trains but a clean train would not cost too much to do and perhaps be aware what the visitor is seeing . I will not be going on this train again
