Late 19th and early 20th century OS maps clearly show the triangular shaped Ambergate Junction of the Manchester Branch of the Midland Railway situated to the north-west of the mainline of the North Midland Railway. (1, 2, 3) SK 349 517. Disused part of triangle at Ambergate Station. Partly demolished by British Rail in 1986-7. All that remains of the celebrated 'trijunct' station is the gritstone bridge carrying the modern single platform Ambergate Station on the truncated Derby - Manchester line above the Ambergate - Ripley road.
