Demolition work will get underway today of the old Ilkeston train station, 50 years after it closed.
It will make way for a new one costing £6.5 million.
Ilkeston has often been described as the largest town in England without a train station after Dr Beeching, a former Chairman of British Railways, brought out a report in the 1960s, which led to thousands of stations and many railways closing down.
The new station will have two platforms, automated ticket machines, a 150-space car park and a taxi rank.
It will also service the Nottingham to Leeds line.
London Midland train services have been suspended between Barnt Green and Redditch after a vehicle hit a bridge.
All lines are blocked and Cross City line trains are unable to run south of Barnt Green.
There are delays of up to 45 minutes on East Midlands Trains between Nottingham and Skegness due to a signalling problem at Grantham.
There is no estimate for when a normal service will resume.

It is part of the £50million transformation which links platforms to a multi-storey car park, and eventually two new tram lines. It will be completed later this year.
