This barrow crossing notice at Alfreton highlights a less than satisfactory situation for disabled travellers, or those with prams, who cannot alight here southbound but have to continue to Nottingham, change trains and return. There is a similar arrangement for those wishing to join southbound services who have to go north to Chesterfield first. Just to make sure, the gate, and that on the other platform, were both padlocked. Hopefully East Midlands Trains have a plan to improve facilities, but six years on from my visit there are still no lifts.
