Newstead railway station
serves the village of Newstead
Newstead was the original terminus of the Robin Hood Line when it was re-opened in 1993. The line has since been extended to Mansfield and Worksop. A former stop Annesley railway station just to the north did not re-open, as Newstead station was thought capable of handling the extra passengers.
Newstead Abbey, the ancestral home of Lord Byron is about two to three miles away and is served by this station.
Monday to Saturday there is generally an hourly service from Kirkby-in-Ashfield southbound to Nottingham. There is one train per hour northbound, terminating at Worksop. There is no service on Sundays
Former operator Central Trains has been replaced by a new company called East Midlands Trains
from November 2007 which operates all services in the East Midlands. The franchise is operated by the Stagecoach
group who have expressed an interest in running Sunday service from December 2008 but it is unknown if this station will be included for a Sunday service.
