In 1978 a miniature railway was built on the west side of the trackbed from Rudyard Station to the Dam. This closed two years later and was moved to the Suffolk wildlife park. and then to Trago Mills in Devon. One of the locomotives, a model of the Leek and Manifold Valley Light Railway engine No.1 E. R. Calthrope now periodically revisits the current railway at Rudyard.
