West Midlands Railway have logged issues raised since the introduction of the May 2019 timetable.

On the Hereford service these are all about lack of enough seats.
The response is:
"New trains are on the production line, and due with us next year.
"All trains should have at least one extra carriage from 16.12.2019, although this is dependent on the delivery of ‘second hand’ trains from TransPennine Express.
"We have looked at swapping trains between routes to secure extra short term capacity, but logistical constraints prevent this.
"We’re also considering the designation of Bromsgrove as a ‘pick up only’ stop on certain southbound trains, to free-up seats for those travelling to Droitwich Spa and beyond."

Details of issues on the Snow Hill lines may be found on the same link or on their web page, linked from our contacts page.

*** There are plans to charge for parking at all stations in the BRUG area. More details in due course.
