Empty trains are due to run between Coventry & Leamington today (6th Dec) and tomorrow (7th Dec) mornings (times). There are two return workings booked for next Monday (11th) and Wednesday (13th) lunchtime which are booked to stop at Kenilworth, also non-passenger. They are booked for class 15x, probably a single car class 153. Peter.

The franchise operates in two parts: London North Western Railway which operates the long distance Birmingham-London Euston, Birmingham-Crewe/Liverpool and London Euston-Nuneaton-Crewe services. West Midland Railway who operate local services around Birmingham including Coventry-Nuneaton & (starting in 2018) Coventry-Leamington. Network Map

Morning all Wave Tile Hill Station relief. The number of passengers who use Tile Hill station, I am surprised that a commercial vendor hasn't set up shop anyway. Maybe too much red-tape.

I use THL often. Canley would be easier, but there are far fewer parking spaces, and only alternate trains stop there, unlike THL, where all the London Midland (or whatever it's now called) trains stop. But in the week, the car park is chock-a-block during working hours. There's a mobile café van selling coffee etc., first thing for the commuters, during the weekdays (not sure about weekends). Sadly, THL is quite often used by suicidists. A few years ago, during the day at COV station, the ticket office attendant suddenly put up a sign saying "all trains to New St cancelled"; no reason given. It turned out that someone from my workplace had cycled to THL and jumped in front of the Inter City. The rail network was closed for several hours.

This letter has appeared on the ORR Website (although dated 17th November it has only been added recently). The letter removes the Sunday service from the track access application to run the Coventry-Kenilworth-Leamington service; so Kenilworth station will open with only a Monday-Saturday service. Because Cross Country run additional trains via Coventry on a Sunday it was not possible to accommodate the Kenilworth service with class 153 timings. There was also concern over reduced maintenance time for the class 153's. It is planned to introduce the Sunday service when the Class 172 units become available in 2018, but this will now require a new track access application. Peter..
