History

Nottingham station is the principal railway station in the city of Nottingham and the Greater Nottingham area. It is served mainly by Midland Mainline and Central Trains. Passengers bustle around the typical grand edifice of Londons Broad Street Station in 1865. ... Nottingham is a city (and county town of Nottinghamshire) in the East Midlands of England. ... Greater Nottingham is the surrounding conurbation of the city of Nottingham. ... Midland Mainline (MML) is a British train operating company, created after the privatisation of British Rail. ... Central Trains is a train operating company in the United Kingdom, running local and cross-country trains in central England. ...


The first Nottingham station opened in May 1839 when the Midland Counties Railway opened the line from Nottingham to Derby. This terminus station was situated on the west side of Carrington Street on the site now occupied by Nottingham Magistrates' Courts.


By 1848 the railway had outgrown this station and new lines to Lincoln had been opened. A new through station was opened on Station Road on 22 May and was by the architect J E Hall of Nottingham.


When the Great Central Railway opened its Victoria Station in 1900, the Midland Railway appointed A E Lambert, a local Nottingham architect, to rebuild the Midland station. Lambert had been the architect for the Victoria Station and consequently the two buildings shared many similarities in their design.


The first contract for the station buildings was awarded to Edward Wood and Sons of Derby on 23 January 1903, who were also awarded the contract for the buildings on platforms 1 and 2 on 16 September 1903. The contract for the buildings on platforms 4 and 5 was awarded to Kirk, Knight & Co of Sleaford on 18 June 1903, who were also responsible for building the parcels office (Forward House) on Station Street, which opened in November 1903. Location within the British Isles Sleaford is a town in North Kesteven, Lincolnshire, England. ...


The station was built in an Edwardian Baroque Revival style at a cost of £1 million and was described by the Evening News on the eve of its opening (16 January 1904) as a magnificent new block of buildings. The station was built using a mix of red brick, terracotta (which was used as a substitute for building stone) and faience (a glazed terracotta) with slate and glazed pitch roofs over the principal buildings. The Edwardian period or Edwardian era in the United Kingdom is the period 1901 to 1910, the reign of King Edward VII. It is sometimes extended to include the period to the start of World War I in 1914 or even the end of the war in 1918. ...


The station’s forebuildings were opened to passengers without any formal ceremony on 17 January 1904, although next day the Evening News reported that the platforms were still in a state of chaos and these were not expected to be ready for another 9 months. However it did consider that ‘the result promises to be the provision for Nottingham of one of the most commodious and most convenient passenger stations in the country’. Nottingham is a city (and county town of Nottinghamshire) in the East Midlands of England. ...


The day began with the closure of the booking offices in the old station after the last tickets were issued for the 5:25 London train and the new booking offices were opened in time to issue tickets for the 6:25 Erewash Valley train. No attempt was made to exclude the public from the building and many took the opportunity to view the new station buildings. The Evening News commented on the public’s admiration of the style and elegance of the station approaches and booking hall and went on to describe the day’s events. In the morning, local juveniles swarmed into the station and spent their time playing boisterous games and dodging the duty policeman. Then later in the day, when the juveniles had finally been excluded, many top-hatted gents and their ladies came to promenade after the morning service, no doubt adding some decorum to the proceedings, and to look at the architecturally pleasing buildings and general satisfaction was expressed. Finally as evening approached the gates were closed and none but passengers were allowed inside. London is the capital city of England and of the United Kingdom, and is the most populous city in the European Union. ...


The Midland Railway always suffered the indignity that its rival the Great Central Railway crossed the top of Nottingham Midland station on a 170ft long bridge.

There are plans to redevelop the station which include more shops and Nottingham Express Transit trams running over the top of the station. [1] The station was previously known as Nottingham Midland station and is the only station in the city after the closure of Nottingham Victoria in 1967 due to the Beeching Axe (the site is now the Victoria shopping centre). A tram in downtown Nottingham. ... Nottingham Victoria railway station was a Great Central Railway and Great Northern Railway railway station in Nottingham, England. ... 1967 (MCMLXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar (the link is to a full 1967 calendar). ... Many railway lines were closed as a result of the Beeching Axe The Beeching Axe was an informal name for the British Governments attempt in the 1960s to control the spiralling cost of running the British railway system by closing what it considered to be little-used and unprofitable...


The station has 6 platforms. Platforms 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are halved into A and B to accommodate two trains on each platform. Platform 2 is a bay platform at the eastern end of the station which accommodates terminating trains from Newark or Grantham. 15,000 people pass through the station each day. Station Street tram stop is connected to the station concourse via a pedestrian bridge. Station Street tram station is a tram stop in Central Nottingham, England. ...
