Journeys up on Robin Hood train line

THE NUMBER of passenger journeys on Hucknall, Bulwell and Newstead’s Robin Hood train line has trebled in the last 15 years, new figures have revealed.

Extra services, new lines and improved reliability have all been suggested as reasons behind the rise on the route, which is run by East Midlands Trains.

Jim Bamford, rail officer for Notts County Council, said: “Over the years, there have been a lot of significant improvements and East Midlands Trains have consistently been one of the most punctual operators in the country.”
