Derby Station (Derby)

Derby Station serves the Midland city of Derby.

Its is a large station, as befits what has always been a railway city. The roof was by Robert Stephenson, and was originally built in 1839.

Trains from London start at St. Pancras Station, and run via St. Albans, Luton, Bedford, Leicester and Loughborough.

The line continues Northwards to Sheffield.

There is another line which goes to Burton-on-Trent, Tamworth and Birmingham, and a suburban line to Sinfin.

The extensive marshalling yards have been converted into the massive Pride Park, which includes the new Derby County football ground.

Derby was the headquarters of the Midland Railway, and its symbol, the wyvern, can be seen on the wall of a neighbouring building.
