Tramway overhead
At one time the trains of two major railway companies ran through Nottingham. The Midland Railway ran roughly west to east and the Great Central Railway ran south to north. It is the latter whose route is seen here, running alongside Trent Street on a viaduct so as to clear the Midland's tracks and its station a short distance behind the camera. Trains last used this viaduct in 1974 and the tracks were lifted soon afterwards, but thirty years later rails were once again laid along the viaduct to serve Nottingham Express Transit and its trams. The overhang carries the platforms of the Station Street terminus but beyond the tramstop the viaduct has been replaced by a concrete one to bring the trams eventually down to street level as they pass through the city centre.
