Sheffield Region Transport Plan 2019 – A New Tram-Train Station At Magna

When i was last riding on a Class 399 tram-train, a rail enthusiast mentioned this.

He said his grand-daughter liked to visit Magna or the Magna Science Adventure Centre, to give it its full name, and a tram-stop would be very welcome.

This is a paragraph from the Wikipedia entry.

The site, often used for staging events, conferences and gigs, is over 1/3 of a mile long and won the Enjoy England Gold Award for Business Tourism in 2006[2] and has received other awards for the high quality of product.

That backs up my informant.

This Google Map shows the site.

Note that the tram-train line between Sheffield and Rotherham runs across the top of the map.

So when Sheffield’s plans include this wording.

New tram-train station and associated park and ride facilities at Magna.

I think it is likely, that a tram-stop and Park-and-Ride will be built at Magna.
