The station should not be confused with the Butler's Hill tram stop of the Nottingham Express Transit (NET) system, which is some 250 metres (820 ft) to the south-east. The tram stop is situated on the alignment of the former Midland Railway route from Nottingham to Worksop, which is now shared between the NET and the Robin Hood railway line, but there was never a railway station at its location.[4]
