2 Jun 09 - Matlock Ticket Machine Installation


East Midlands Trains have installed the first automatic ticket machine on the branch at Matlock station. This will be followed in the near future by a machine on the Derby-bound platform at Belper.




Matlock and Belper are the two busiest stations on the line. Train conductors often struggle to sell tickets to all those boarding at Belper in the short journey to Derby.


The ticket machines are being installed in conjunction with the automatic ticket barriers at Derby. Once the Belper machine is in operation and a pass scheme finalised for those needing to cross Derby station to access Pride Park, it is likely that the barriers will be brought into operation.
