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.
