New exhibition salutes Toton

Toton Sidings

A fascinating exhibition which pays tribute to Toton Sidings opens at Erewash Museum this Friday (26th May) to revive memories of what was once the largest marshalling yard in Europe. 

The Museum has worked in partnership with the Long Eaton and District 50+ Forum on the project and the display is expected to generate a big interest from railway fans and the many local families with connections to the Sidings over the years.

The Forum was awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to research and create the display, which is called ‘Toton Sidings Remembered 1856-1984’ and will run in the Lally Gallery until Saturday 15 July.

The exhibition features photos of the marshalling yard and the people who worked there plus other memorabilia – some of which has been loaned by local people.

Toton Sidings processed around two million coal wagons a year in its heyday and the display will look at the history of the site while also featuring newly commissioned poster art on how the yard worked.

The collection has been developed and put together by a project management group that included Forum members and project leaders Pete Wearn and David Farley, local railway historians Brian Amos and Phil Burton and Helen Martinez and Debbi Mills of Erewash Museum.

Erewash Museum is in Ilkeston town centre, a short walk from the Market Place. Opening hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm, and Monday to Saturday during school holidays.
