Services into Birmingham International will be busier than usual due to two popular exhibitions at the NEC. Further up the line on Sunday 19 June, the popular Cosford Airshow attracts thousands of aviation enthusiasts from around the country many of which travel to the show by train due to the proximity of the show to the train station. Customers wanting to attend these events are urged to take the earliest train possible as services will be busier than usual. There will also be a post event queuing system in place at Cosford station.
A rail replacement bus service will be running between Newport and Shrewsbury over this weekend due to Network Rail improvement works. As a result of the road closures associated with the Shrewsbury Half Marathon on Sunday 19 June, this rail replacement bus service on Sunday morning may take longer than planned. Whilst there will be road access to the station, we are also advising customers who are being dropped off at the station by car to leave ample time for their journey to the station so not to miss their train.
