Not sure this has been mentioned yet but on East Midlands Today the other night they had a story saying that the LRTA thinks that the Nottingham Express Transit should be extended to East Midlands Airport by use of a tram train along the Midland Main Line. http://www.nottinghampost.com/tram-...ands-Airport/story-26757003-detail/story.html I also note that they mention that East Midlands Parkway is not fit for purpose as it doesn't link to the airport very well although given the station was built to serve as a park and ride station and not an airport station I don't think that it really matters. Personally I just can't see a tram train from Nottingham ever working as trams are very slow and bringing a large amount of luggage on the trams often annoys the conductors and other passengers. I also don't see how trams could be timetabled in on the Midland Main Line given that most of the trains operating are much faster that trams will ever run at. What does everyone else think.
