The dis­rup­tion at Derby Rail­way sta­tion has caused me to ex­per­i­ment with al­ter­na­tive routes to Lon­don. First from Lich­field Trent Val­ley where the park­ing is poor, the sta­tion bereft of re­fresh­ments but the price rea­son­able. Then from East Mid­lands Park­way which takes an hour’s drive from Tiss­ing­ton but the link from the A50 is good, the park­ing space is mas­sive and there is a café. The £200m res­ig­nalling project at Derby is the big­gest rail in­vest­ment since the 1960s. The re­sults will be re­vealed in midOc­to­ber, when I will be re­turn­ing to the city to catch my East Mid­lands trains!
