Overview[edit] The decision by the Midland Railway
Midland Railway
to have their headquarters in Derby, with its central location made it a busy node of the rail network. First opened in 1839, it was at the time one of the largest in the country and was unusual for being shared by more than one company. Until recently,[year needed] major carriage and locomotive workshops as well as the Research Division in the Railway Technical Centre were housed there. The station is an interchange point between the Midland Main Line
Midland Main Line
from London St Pancras to Leeds
Leeds
and long-distance services on the Cross-Country route from Aberdeen through Birmingham
Birmingham
New Street to Penzance or Bournemouth (the zero milepost on the latter route is at the south end of platform 1). Until the mid twentieth century, the station was also served by through trains from Manchester
Manchester
and Glasgow to London. Local services from Nottingham
Nottingham
to Matlock along the Derwent Valley Line serve the station as well as local and semi-fast services to Stoke-on-Trent, Crewe, Birmingham
Birmingham
and Cardiff Central. Derby
Derby
station has six platforms (all but Platform 5 are through platforms) connected by a footbridge, which is used as an exit to Pride Park
Pride Park
and a car park. History[edit] Early East Midlands railway schemes[edit]

After the building of the Stockton and Darlington Railway
Stockton and Darlington Railway
in 1825, a number of ambitious projects for long-distance lines between cities had been mooted. Among these was a line between London and Edinburgh, for both goods and passengers, via Bedford
Bedford
and Leeds, passing in between Carlisle and Newcastle. Meanwhile, a number of short lines were built for specific purposes. Among these were the Mansfield and Pinxton and the Leicester
Leicester
and Swannington. The Mansfield and Pinxton was a feeder for a canal and was a wagonway, but these short lines were pivotal in later events. Possibly the longest was the Cromford and High Peak Railway, opened in 1833, to connect the Cromford Canal
Cromford Canal
with the Peak Forest Canal. It attracted interest because it provided access to Manchester
Manchester
through the Peak District
Peak District
of Derbyshire, even today an obstacle to transport. In the 1830s, lines were already in progress between Bristol
Bristol
and London and from each to Birmingham
Birmingham
and thence to Liverpool
Liverpool
and Manchester, and their promoters were looking ahead. Three schemes came to the fore for the East Midlands. The Midland Grand Junction Railway would connect Birmingham
Birmingham
with Sheffield
Sheffield
and Derby, with a branch to Nottingham
Nottingham
and another branch from Sheffield
Sheffield
to Manchester. There would also be a line to the East Coast at Goole. In 1824 the London Northern Railway Company was formed to link Birmingham, Derby, Nottingham, Hull and Manchester
Manchester
with London. Two options were proposed. One would branch at Loughborough, with branches for Nottingham
Nottingham
and Derby, and proceeding to Manchester
Manchester
by the Cromford and High Peak Railway. The other option would pass through Northampton, with a branch to Birmingham, go on to Derby, with a branch to Nottingham, and thence to the Cromford and High Peak. The Grand Midland Railway
Midland Railway
was a proposal to branch from the London to Birmingham railway, already under consideration, at Northampton, and bring it through Leicester, Loughborough
Loughborough
and Derby
Derby
to the Cromford and High Peak. Towards the end of the 1820s the economic climate of the country had deteriorated and many investors were waiting to see how the new Liverpool
Liverpool
and Manchester
Manchester
Railway would succeed. What investment that was forthcoming was for ventures with a reasonable expectation of a good, and rapid, return. Although the surveys were useful in the planning of later lines, the three lines were never built.[2] Derby
Derby
investors, naturally, favoured the scheme by the Midland Grand Junction to connect through Derby
Derby
(at what was to be called the Grand Central Station) to the Cromford and High Peak Railway
Cromford and High Peak Railway
and thence to Manchester, since the London Northern would pass through Sandiacre some ten miles away. In the event neither line was built; the Cromford and High Peak Railway was not ideally suited to passenger working, and an alternative via Bakewell
Bakewell
and Chapel-en-le-Frith
Chapel-en-le-Frith
would encounter very difficult terrain. ( Manchester
Manchester
was not, in fact, reached until later in the century by the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway and its extensions.) Three railways[edit] The Midland Counties Railway
Midland Counties Railway
was originally proposed to connect the Mansfield and Pinxton Railway
Mansfield and Pinxton Railway
to Leicester
Leicester
to supply coal. However, supplies provided by the canal network and the River Trent
River Trent
to Nottingham, meant that few people were willing to invest.[3] Provision of coal supplies to Derby
Derby
were via the Derby
Derby
Canal but this had not been a resounding success. People in Derby
Derby
were supportive of any scheme which would bring a railway to the town. George Hudson
George Hudson
encouraged the building of North Midland Railway, later becoming its chairman. Meanwhile, financiers in Birmingham, including G.C.Glyn, a banker and chairman of the London and Birmingham
Birmingham
Railway, were looking to expand their system. The Birmingham
Birmingham
and Derby
Derby
Junction Railway would it give a link from Yorkshire to London, with access to the coalfields. The promoters of the Midland Counties Railway
Midland Counties Railway
suggested a line linking Nottingham, Derby
Derby
and Leicester, with an extension to Rugby for London. Their original plan in 1833 had been to bring their line to Derby
Derby
at Darby's Yard and Exeter Gardens, at the east side of the present Market Place, with a bridge over the Derwent. Following Vignoles's reassessment in 1835 a new route was proposed, either north or south of the Derby
Derby
Canal to a terminus near St. Mary's Bridge with a branch to Full Street near to John Lombe's Silk Mill. Both options would cross the North Midland lines north of the other station.[4] The North Midland planned to build their station near Nottingham
Nottingham
Road, avoiding a river bridge, while the Birmingham
Birmingham
and Derby
Derby
planned to build theirs nearby. They realised the value of a link with the North Midland, and decided to bridge the river and share its station. In 1836 the Town Council suggested a single station for all three companies and the Midland Counties agreed. One site considered was an island bounded by the River Derwent and the canal, called The Holmes, now Bass's Recreation Ground. The space was restricted and susceptible to flooding, and the trackwork would be complicated. The selected site was further south on the west bank, Borough's Fields, in Litchurch, at the southern side of the Castlefields estate.[5] It was a mile from the town, but the Council built a carriageway to the town centre, along Siddals Lane, now Siddals Road. The station was built by the North Midland, with the other two companies renting spaces. The whole arrangement was confirmed by the North Midland Railway
North Midland Railway
Act of 1839. The Tri Junct Station[edit]

Derby

Station North Midland Railway

Although some sources refer to it as the 'Tripartite Station'.[6] it became known as the 'Tri Junct Station',[4][7] It was 1,050 ft (320 m) long with one through platform plus a north and a south bay, the main platform and bays connected to seven stabling roads by a series of carriage turntables (rolling-stock was moved around the station by hand). These platform and stabling roads were all beneath a three-bay train shed.[8] Whishaw[9] described it thus: "The admirably contrived and elegant roofs, the spacious, the great length of the whole erection extending to upwards of a thousand feet. All unite in rendering it the most complete structure of the kind in the United Kingdom or perhaps the world."

Sketch diagram showing platform arrangement when first opened

The platform was in three parts with the centre section built forward as in the diagram, which allowed trains some freedom of movement.[10] With one platform for passengers to board and alight, it was not necessary for them to cross running lines when changing trains. The station offices were also partitioned into three sections, each line having its own facilities. Fronting this was a magnificent two-storey stone building designed by Francis Thompson. The North Midland also built a cluster of workers' houses of which the present Midland Terrace remains preserved as a conservation area. At each end was a hotel. The Midland Hotel, for first class passengers, is said to be the first provincial railway hotel following on after that at Euston in London.[7] The Brunswick Inn was for second class passengers and railway workers. The saying went that patrons of the first chatted about hunting and shooting, of the other, shunting and hooting.[5] The first public departure from a temporary platform was on 4 June 1839[11] when a Midland Counties train ran to Nottingham. (the inaugural run having taken place from Nottingham
Nottingham
on the 30th)[12] The first train to Birmingham
Birmingham
departed on 12 August in the same year, from another temporary platform further south. The Tri Junct Station finally opened when the North Midland line was completed to Rotherham Masborough on 11 May 1840, reaching Leeds
Leeds
seven weeks later. The station's official name was Derby
Derby
Station.[11] Midland Railway[edit]

In 1844 all three railways amalgamated to become the Midland Railway, with headquarters at Derby
Derby
station. Joseph Paxton, a director of the railway, produced his first sketch for the Crystal Palace during a board meeting there.[7] The North Midland repair shop and two locomotive sheds formed the Midland's main locomotive works. In 1846 a north facing spur ( Derby
Derby
North Junction) was added from the Midland Counties line. In 1867 a loop was added to the south, allowing through running for trains from London. The original section was closed in 1969. The junction to the south is called London Road. In 1858 the station was extended with extra offices, improved facilities and a porte-cochère for carriages, designed by John Holloway Saunders, the Midland Railway
Midland Railway
architect. An island platform, the present 2 and 3, was added which was accessed via a level crossing from platform 1. In 1881 platforms 4 to 6 (Platform 5 being a bay to the south) were added, being 850 feet (260 m) long and 45 feet (14 m) wide. The level crossing which gave access from platform 1 to platform 2 was removed and access provided by a new footbridge 16 feet (4.9 m) wide with staircases down to each platform. Platforms 2 and 3 were lengthened by about 350 feet (110 m) and new waiting rooms and refreshment rooms were provided, designed by the company architect John Holloway Sanders. A subway was installed to allow better transfer of luggage between platforms with hydraulic lifts to raise and lower luggage.[13] The turntables were removed and replaced by scissors crossovers, the whole complex controlled by a signal box on the centre platform.[7] The frontage and offices were rebuilt around 1892 to designs by the architect of the Midland Railway, Charles Trubshaw. The station and railway workshops adjoining it were the target of a Zeppelin
Zeppelin
bombing raid during World War I, in 1916, though only slight damage was inflicted. London, Midland and Scottish Railway[edit] The 'main line' on which Derby
Derby
station sat was that from London to Manchester, carrying named expresses such as the 'Palatine' and the 'Peaks', while trains to Leeds
Leeds
and Scotland tended to use the Erewash Valley Line and expresses to Edinburgh, such as The Waverley travelled through Corby and Nottingham. The line from Leeds
Leeds
was nevertheless busy with trains to the south west and Cornwall, and summer specials to Paignton
Paignton
and Torquay. It had a named express, the 'Devonian', which ran from Bradford
Bradford
to Bristol. In World War II, on 15 January 1941, the station was attacked again, becoming one of the few locations in Derby
Derby
to suffer significant bomb damage. The overall roof of the train shed and platform six were severely damaged, with the loss of most of the rest of the glass, although the Victorian frontage of the station survived. British Railways[edit] The station was renamed Derby
Derby
Midland Station on 25 September 1950.[11] It was extensively rebuilt between 1952 and 1954 using pre-stressed concrete. The cost of the modernisation plan was £200,000[14] (equivalent to £5,280,000 in 2016).[15] The station signal box was also rebuilt, described by the staff as 'a cupboard under the stairs'.[16] From 6 May 1968, the station was renamed Derby
Derby
on timetables and platforms, though the full name of Derby
Derby
Midland Station was retained on the station's main sign.[11] Even today, the fuller name is sometimes used, including on the modern main sign (erected 1985) and on the station's electronic departures board.

station excluding goods roads and sidings, showing provision for bidirectional working for any platform

With the advent of power signalling in 1969, the signal box and the crossovers disappeared, and the tracks approaching the station were relaid to allow trains from any direction to enter or leave any platform. The original Midland Counties Railway
Midland Counties Railway
route from the north end of the station to Spondon Junction via Chaddesden sidings was closed as part of this work (trains travelling between Nottingham & stations towards Birmingham
Birmingham
must now reverse at the station).

The Victorian station clock, now in the car park

Further work in 1985 saw the demolition of the historic Victorian station entrance and booking hall. The entrance's original clock was moved to the north end of the car park. The coats of arms of the Midland Railway
Midland Railway
and of the City of Derby
Derby
was fixed to the frontage of the new replacement booking hall and entrance. The decision to demolish the old building was a controversial one at the time.[17] Post-privatisation[edit] Upon the privatisation of British Rail, the station became owned by Railtrack
Railtrack
and later Network Rail. Day-to-day operation was initially with Midland Mainline
Midland Mainline
who refurbished it with the installation of a large electronic departure board in the station entrance hall and smaller boards on all platforms. The station is now managed by East Midlands Trains.

The station's departures board

In 2005, the footbridge connecting the platforms, which had been temporarily supported for at least 30 years, was replaced. Whilst doing this, engineers discovered that there were stresses in the concrete of the 1950s canopy. Work to demolish the canopies and erect new ones began in mid-2007 and was completed in October 2009.[18] A £15m signalling centre, the Derby
Derby
Rail Operating Centre,[19] (formerly known as East Midlands Control Centre), was opened immediately south of the station on 3 April 2008. This replaced the 1960s era panel boxes here and at Trent Junction (near Nottingham), plus the 1986 one at Leicester
Leicester
and various small manual & panel boxes elsewhere in the area. When fully complete, it will be one of 12 and supervise over 350 route miles of railway.[20] Footbridge[edit] On 14 February 2001, Derby

entered into a Covenant With Regard to the Footbridge, that the non-travelling public are free to cross during station hours[21]:13[22]:3 with exceptions for Christmas Day and Boxing day, and a proviso that the footbridge does not become a public right of way.[21]:13 On 21 June 2007 East Midlands Trains
East Midlands Trains
took over the franchise.[23]:1 Under the franchise agreement East Midlands Trains
East Midlands Trains
was required to install automatic ticket gate lines at Derby
Derby
station.[23]:87 On 3 April 2009 East Midlands Trains
East Midlands Trains
sought an amendment from Derby City Council to install gates to "reduce unauthorised use of trains and improve security".[22]:3 Derby
Derby
City Council consented but required removal within 42 days should East Midlands Trains
East Midlands Trains
be found in non-compliance of the additional terms.[22]:3 Ticket barriers were introduced on 18 August 2009.[24][25] The barriers must be left open if they are not manned at both ends,[22]:14 and ad-hoc usage of the footbridge must be allowed at all other times.[22]:14 Pass Scheme[edit] Before the start of barrier introduction, posters and a road show were held, introducing the Pass Scheme for footbridge users.[22]:9–10[24] The publicity resulted in over 800 pass requests in the first weeks before gating.[24] The pass scheme covers non-rail pedestrians and cyclists travelling "from Pride Park
Pride Park
to central Derby
Derby
or vice-versa".[22]:11–10 The agreement requires EMT to make application forms available online as well as at Derby
Derby
station.[22]:11 Pass applications at the station are processed immediately, and all other applications are posted out within 48 hours.[22]:12–13 There is no administration charge for issuing or renewing of passes, with a charge of £5.00 for replacing each lost pass.[22]:13 Passes not swiped at each end of the bridge are revoked.[26][27] Derby
Derby
City Council may audit withdrawn passes.[22]:13 Improvement works 2014–2017[edit] As part of Derby's City Centre Eastern Fringes Area Action Plan, plans for new urban village development 'Castleward' suggest a complete overhaul of the rail station's frontage.[28] Plans also focus on a new pedestrian walkway and cycleway routed between the station and the city centre, featuring new retail, residential and commercial developments.[29] The Midland Main Line
Midland Main Line
electrification project—part of a wider electrification programme—will also involve remodelling the track and signalling at Derby: services approaching from the north will be segregated from those approaching from the south and west, thus removing the current bottleneck at the station.[30] The work is expected to be complete by December 2017.[30] A seventh platform will be built to the north of the current platforms, and this, along with the current platform 6, will be used solely by London–Sheffield services. CrossCountry
