We continue our “Stop by Stop” series in Nottingham today as our journey now reaches the stop at The Forest.
The tramway departs from High School and crosses Forest Road East before it runs along Mount Hooton Road with the Forest recreation ground dominating the scene on the right hand side. Mount Hooton Road turns into Noel Street as we continue to climb and that is when we come to The Forest tramstop. After all the standard stops we’ve seen on this leg of the journey it’s a bit of a change here as we have three platform faces – one island platform and one on the other side of the tracks. The centre platform face is not used in regular service but when The Forest becomes a temporary terminus it comes into its own. The outer face of the island platform is used for outbound services with the side platform used for inbound services. The platforms have shelters, ticket machines and everything else!
