The Midland Railway's Ambergate & Pye Bridge line was opened on May 1 1875. This was primarily a goods line, to divert the increasingly heavy traffic in meat, grain, fruit and timber from the Americas, imported via Liverpool and other Lancashire ports, away from the congested Ambergate-Derby-Trent line.
