Railway hopes - station is crucial

Like a lot of Ilkeston folk, I am waiting eagerly to find out if we will get the money to re-open a railway station in the town.

It has been a long battle and if it is won, it will be crucial for the future of the town. I for one will definitely use a railway station to get to work.

But I am sure there will be plenty of wider benefits.
