6 Jan 09 - New Hourly Timetable settles in




With the introduction of the hourly service from mid December 2008, views like this are now occasionally possible at Belper with single-car Class 153 units in old Central Trains and new East Midlands Trains liveries crossing on Nottingham-Matlock and Matlock-Nottingham services (the latter running a few minutes late).

FDVL volunteers are monitoring the punctuality of the service (initial reports are promising) to support the case to East Midlands Trains to add Cromford & Whatstandwell stops on all services. FDVL are also discussing with EMT how the capacity of the evening peak 1650 & 1750 departures from Derby to Matlock can be increased (currently diagrammed for single-car Class 153's)
