AROUND 20 passengers boarded Bromsgrove's first early Sunday service, which kicked off last Sunday (December 9) as part of timetable improvements undertaken by London Midland.

Prior to then, commuters wanting to travel on a Sunday to Birmingham had to wait until 3.10pm to get the first train of the day.

But, the first train now departs Bromsgrove at 9.20am and the number of services between the town and the Second City has increased from ten to 18 (nine each-way).

Maria Androsova, who works at a Birmingham law firm, was among the first people to board the new service.

She told The Standard she had relied on car lifts previously but, from now on, would definitely be using the new service.
