how to win friends and influence people … not!
SLUG members and Stourbridge line commuters have contacted SLUG expressing concern about discovering that their car windscreens had been leafleted while parked at Cradley Heath and Stourbridge Junction stations last Friday; with many of the leaflets having extricated themselves from the cars and littering the car park.
The Stourbridge Line User Group would like to make it clear that these leaflets were in no ways connected with the Group but were distributed, almost certainly without the permission of Transport for West Midlands who manage these car parks or London Midland who operate the stations, by a Green Party activist from Halesowen named Tim Weller.
The Stourbridge Line User Group shares Mr Weller's view that the railway lines from
Round Oak to Pleck Junction (south of Walsall) and from Ryecroft Junction (north
of Walsall) to Lichfield should be reinstated with the entire route from Stourbridge
Junction to Burton-

There is one final, very important, reason why SLUG gives Mr Weller a wide berth.
He is intransigent -
SLUG will continue to campaign for the reopening of the line through Dudley. We will do this by talking amicably and liaising with all other parties. We will not target passengers' cars with flyers. We will not insult railway professionals. We will behave professionally in all of our discussions. We will retain the respect of local authorities and train operating companies. We will not behave as Tim Weller does.
