The Robin Hood line is a major success story in rail travel. It was originally opened as a result of a jointly funded scheme by Nottinghamshire County Council, Derbyshire County Council and Nottingham City Council, with assistance from the Strategic Rail Authority.
The line is now operated on a commercial basis by East Midlands Trains and provides a link between Worksop in the north of the county and Nottingham in the south of the county, via Mansfield.
In addition to being an important commuter service, used by over 3,500 people a day, the line also offers access to a number of attractions in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
A timetable is available in PDF format on the East Midlands Trains website.
Cycles are carried free of charge on the Robin Hood Line but at peak times of day the numbers carried are restricted.
All Robin Hood Line trains carry ramps to allow easy access for standard wheelchairs. Unfortunately, because of space constraints, powered chairs and scooters over a certain size (67cm width, 120cms length) cannot be accommodated.
