Many locals will have seen flagged up on the news yesterday details of a
report by ATOC who are the association of train operating companies, about
the need for expansion of the rail system by the restoration of lines lost
since the time of Beeching, along with around 40 new stations.
Now whilst unfortunately our own plans for a station at Gamesley aren't
considered as part of this report, the former Woodhead line from Hadfield
across to Sheffield dose get a mention as been a potential link line worthy
of further consideration.
Further details on the report are available from the ATOC website at
