The fallen tree on the cross city line

Cross city line trains to and from Lichfield are being disrupted due to a fallen tree.

It came down in high winds overnight leading to major delays this morning (12th March).

Train operator West Midlands Railway says road transport is being put in place between Lichfield stations and Sutton Coldfield, with ticket acceptance also in place on other routes.

A spokesman for West Midlands Railway said:

“We are sorry we are unable to provide a service on the cross city north line today.

“Passengers are advised to allow more time for their journeys today.

“Anyone delayed 15 minutes or more is encouraged to claim compensation. details can be found on the West Midlands Railway website.”

  1. I don’t understand..what does it mean “tickets will be excepted on Nation…” can you clarify?

  2. Can understand a tree coming down, fair play, it does disrupt . However it was business as usual this-morning 13/03/2020 with cancellations at Lichfiled City and short units again due to insufficient staff , I was on a 3 car train ( short unit again) crushed against the window and plenty were left behind at onward stations after Sutton Coldfield ,I really hope the powers that be are still monitoring this company , they are still operating when the plug should have been pulled before Christmas, please do the sensible thing now and get rid because I have had enough and am sure the majority of people using this company feel the same.
