Details of the next phase of the £32bn HS2 high-speed rail network have been unveiled by the government.
The preferred route of phase two goes north from Birmingham along two branches, including a new station at Toton near Nottingham.
The suburb has been chosen instead of stations in Nottingham city centre or nearby Derby.
BBC East Midlands Today's Mike O'Sullivan gauges the views of local residents.
