Campaigns
The Stourbridge Line User Group exists to promote and protect the Birmingham to Worcester Railway which runs through Stourbridge and Kidderminster. Our campaigns are based on these two objectives and progress is measured from the time of the Group’s inception. The Group does not assume to take the credit for all improvements made, but working together with other stakeholders, we can claim to have brought forward :-
Virtual elimination of graffiti on trains
Better station environments
Much better passenger information
New trains
Improvements to Chiltern services to London
New journey opportunities by changing at Galton Bridge
Reinstatement of a single change connection to Birmingham International
Improved Birmingham to Kidderminster frequency
Off-peak and evening services to Hartlebury
SLUG will vigorously pursue its campaigns through various channels and raise its profile to recruit new members. It regularly meets with local government transport authorities and train operators. It will also co-operate with other user groups where there is a common interest.

SLUG will undertake to raise the standards on the Stourbridge Railway Line in the context of the complete journey experience and is pursuing further improvements in the following eight areas.
