East Midlands Trains (EMT) has announced celebration plans for the final week of the Nottingham re-signalling work and the re-opening of Nottingham station.
The celebrations are based on positive customer feedback from initiatives taking place throughout the work.
EMT volunteers will be handing out free macaroons to customers today. There will also be a 'mascot dance-off'.

The threat of strike action by workers at East Midlands Trains has been avoided, after the company won an appeal over a High Court decision not to grant them an injunction against rail union members.
It comes after claims of a breakdown in industrial relations over a number of issues, including the scheduling of work in Nottingham.
An injunction was granted by judges at the Court of Appeal, after East Midlands Trains appealed an original injunction application which was rejected last month.
From today, direct trains will be back up and running between Nottingham and Lincoln.
Services have been suspended due to major engineering work, with passengers having to use rail replacement buses instead.
Trains to Lincoln and Skegness will run until the Bank Holiday weekend, with a two day break before the network re-opens as normal on Monday 26th August.
The Rail Maritime and Transport Union has responded to East Midlands Trains' appeal to the High Court.
The rail company has appealed after losing an injunction application against the union over strike action.
Instead of wasting the court's time and their customers money with another punt on the anti union laws, East Midlands Trains should be sitting down with RMT and resolving this dispute. The issues are clear - treating their staff with fairness, dignity and respect in light of the Nottingham engineering works rather than resorting to bullying, enforcement and the ripping up of agreements and procedures.
Passengers have experienced another weekend of disruption as the industrial action remains rock solid in the teeth of misleading information from the company and EMT would rather have another run to the courts instead of reaching a solution. Any court action will be stoutly defended by RMT yet again.
East Midlands Trains says it will take its fight to prevent what it deems 'unlawful strike action' by RMT union members to the Court of Appeal.
On Wednesday, the firm lost its High Court application for an injunction against the union.
It's a shame that East Midlands Trains have wasted time and money dragging RMT into court under the cloak of the anti-union laws when they should have been sitting round the table resolving this dispute which is all about treating RMT members on this franchise with dignity and respect in light of the planned engineering works around Nottingham.
East Midlands Trains has lost its High Court application for an injunction against the Rail Maritime and Transport Union.
The rail company took the legal action after hundreds of the union's members banned overtime, claiming a breakdown of relations between the two parties.
East Midlands Trains had said the dispute was "invented".
A judgment is expected today following legal action taken by East Midlands Trains against a trade union over a dispute it claimed had been 'invented'.
Members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union (RMT) banned overtime earlier this month over claims of a breakdown in industrial relations over a number of issues, including the scheduling of work in Nottingham.
The union said the action had led to timetable changes and cancellations over the weekend, but the company maintained they were due to driver shortages.
The case was heard in the High Court yesterday, with judgment reserved until today
