Mansfield Railway
The Mansfield Railway was incorporated by an Act of 26 July 1910 to build an eleven mile line from near Kirkby-in-Ashfield on the Great Central Railway's London Extension to near Clipstone on the Great Central's Lancashire, Derbyshire & East Coast Line. There were stations at Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield and Mansfield. The line opened to goods in sections between 1913 and 1916, while passenger service commenced on 2 April 1917. The line was worked by the Great Central Railway. There was an initial service of three trains each way daily between Nottingham Victoria and Ollerton, which had increased to fourteen trains each way daily by 1939. The Mansfield Railway became part of the LNER on 1 January 1923. The line closed to passengers on 2 January 1956 though a truncated goods service continued until 7 January 1968.
