Further cuts to West Midlands Trains services as an 'increased numbers of rail workers enter self-isolation'

West Midlands Trains have announced further cuts to their services due to the coronavirus outbreak.

A new, reduced service timetable will be released tomorrow (3 April) and come into effect from Monday (6 April).

The changes will include:

  • All journeys between Birmingham New Street and London Euston will now involve a change at Northampton.

  • Worcester to Hereford route will no longer receive a West Midlands Railway service.

  • No WMT trains will call at Bearley and Claverdon.

West Midlands trains say the timetable has been designed to keep as many services running as possible if part of the network has to close due to the increased impact of COVID-19.
