Who is going to manage the new station? I have heard talk of Northern but I would think it would make more sense for it to be managed by East Midlands Trains.
Who manages Langley Mill? The same TOC would surely be responsible for Ilkeston given that the two stations are likely to be served by the same TOC.
EMT manages Langley Mill. They provided the full service until Northern started running to Nottingham but now they just provide a few either end of the day. I imagine the same will apply to Ilkeston - though perhaps the "Northern Connect" as it will become should be the "fast" service on this route?
Dronfield, despite having a very similar service provision, is managed by Northern. Which probably makes sense consider that services like station cleaning are more efficient if confined to a limited geographic area.
According to the Northern route map, Ilkeston isn't scheduled to open until 2018!?
