From Awsworth the line crossed the Erewash Valley by means of the impressive Bennerley Viaduct which has been partly preserved. It then made the climb to Ilkeston before crossing the Nut Brook towards West Hallam. At Stanton Junction lines led northwards to Heanor and southwards to Stanton Ironworks. Ilkeston at one time had three stations, Ilkeston Town being on a branch leading from the Midland Railway's Erewash Valley Line at the third station, Ilkeston Junction and Cossall.

Bridges have been filled in, and the station demolished. The town's 1990's Police Station has been built on its site. Some of the remaining track bed has also been built on, with the remainder forming the Cotmanhay Linear Park.
