We are a group dedicated to improving the standard of public transport.

Our aim is to create a user friendly rail service that meets all expectations of reliability, frequency and cleanliness.

We aim to protect the line up to and beyond Birmingham and Worcester and to promote the re-opening of the former Stourbridge to Dudley railway with an extension to Walsall.

Our efforts so far have helped to upgrade evening and Sunday services, provide new through routes and refurbish many stations. Our strength is in the number of our members.

about us

Membership of SLUG is £5 per annum for postal membership or £3 for on-line membership.  This modest subscription entitles postal members to a quarterly printed newsletter and on-line members to a newsletter and supplement via email.  It also enables you to attend our AGM and forums, where you can meet the people who fashion the passenger transport systems of the West Midlands County and Worcestershire.  With environmental pressures and collective responsibilities, this is an exciting time for public transport.  Our line is steadily improving.

Join SLUG and help us create a superlative rail and bus network around it.  You can join in one of two ways.
