Rail Travel

Rail is the fastest and most reliable (surface) mode of transport. In Worcestershire, most of our larger urban areas have a rail station, which offers a fast and stress free alternative to driving, particularly if you are going the distance !

Engineering Works

Engineering works take place at many places on the rail network especially at weekends. For further details, visit National Rail.

Local Rail Developments

Bromsgrove Rail Station

Worcestershire County Council and Centro jointly funded a new railway interchange in Bromsgrove to replace the existing station. This was done in partnership with the Department for Transport and Network Rail.

Worcestershire Parkway

Worcestershire County Council is now progressing the Parkway station project.

West Midlands Rail

Worcestershire County Council is proud to be part of West Midlands Rail - a consortium of local authorities seeking to influence the West Midlands Rail franchise by entering into a joint management arrangement with the Department for Transport to devolve certain responsibilities for rail services covered by the franchise. In Worcestershire these are the routes currently operated by London Midland. Visit the West Midlands Rail website.
