The line opened up the previously isolated valley to day-trippers to Padley Gorge and commuters from Sheffield, and the transport of stone from the local quarries. The station buildings still exist and have become home to a popular and well-known café.
On Sundays there is a train every two hours in each direction for most of the year, but a near-hourly service operates from May to September.
Trains from Sheffield take around 15 minutes, and trains from Manchester Piccadilly take around one hour.
