Bromsgrove to get more trains on a Sunday

LONG-suffering rail commuters travelling from Bromsgrove to Birmingham on a Sunday will receive a welcome boost from December 9 when a new improved timetable comes into force.

Currently, those wanting to travel from the town have to wait until 3.10pm before they can get a train to the Second City.

And there are only five services running to Birmingham every Sunday.

But, after lobbying from Bromsgrove Railway Users Group (BRUG), there will now be nine trains going from the town to Birmingham on a Sunday, with the first one leaving at 9.13am, getting to Brum for 10.17am.

After that first one, the new timetable will see further services at 11.13am, 1.13pm, 3.13pm, 5.13pm, 6.15pm, 7.13pm, 8.13pm and 9.13pm.
