|To this end the Friends undertook an on train survey on 22 trains, both on the main line and the Derwent Valley line,during November 2011 and got nearly 700 forms back. East Midlands Trains kindly gave permission for this. The survey will help us understand what the issues are and other studies are being undertaken. If a business case can be made then it will be presented to the government for consideration when the franchise comes up for review.
Anyone with interest in better rail conections from Belper to the North are welcome to contact the Friends via either our Guestbook or Contact Us pages.
