Hucknall On The Nottingham Express Transit

I took these pictures as I rode to Hucknall on the Nottingham Express Transit.

They show how the Robin Hood Line runs alongside the tram and it is just a simple walk-across to exchange between the tram and the train. This Google Map shows the layout.

Hucknall station appears to be a remarkably simple interchange between tram, train and car. It is also surrounded by bus stops.

Passengers just walk between the trams and the single train platform on the level. So it is a truly step-free interchange!

The tram stop opened in 2004, which probably means that it was designed too early to have used tram-train technology.

But of all the places in the UK, this would probably have been the easiest to have built a tram-train interface, where trams could continue running on an electrified Robin Hood Line.

But that is all in the past and it’s too late now to build the line for tram-trains.
