Timetable Changes From 26 October 2020
West Midlands Railway has announced that the Snow Hill lines timetable will be reduced from 26 October in order to provide a reliable service to passengers on the line.

The new Snow Hill timetable features a reduced number of departures compared to the previous timetable but all trains will run with as many carriages as possible.

All departure times on the Snow Hill routes will change under the new timetable and customers are therefore advised to check their journeys carefully before travelling.

Under the new timetable the majority of trains from Birmingham Snow Hill to Worcester will now start and terminate at the city’s Shrub Hill station, rather than Foregate Street as before. Some peak time trains will continue to call at Foregate Street.

With a number of schools and colleges situated along the Snow Hill lines, the timetable has been designed to provide extra services at the beginning and end of the school day.
The weekday service pattern will be as follows :-

  • Stourbridge-Stratford-upon-Avon – two trains per hour (one via Dorridge and one via Whitlocks End). Both trains will call at all stations except Small Heath and Tyseley
  • Kidderminster–Whitlocks End – one train per hour calling all stations
  • Worcester Shrub Hill–Dorridge – one train per hour calling all stations

The full West Midlands Railway press release can be read by clicking on the link below.  The revised timetable will be posted as soon as West Midlands Railway has released it both as a link from this page and on the timetables page.
