Some train services withdrawn on Snow Hill lines in the West Midlands

West Midlands Railway (WMR) is struggling to return some train services to near-normal schedules as it is still feeling the effects of staff having to isolate due to Covid-19.

WMR customer experience director, Jonny Wiseman said “We are committed to providing as many trains as we can with the resources available. We are sorry that we have had to make this decision but the impact of the pandemic means, despite our best effort , we are unable to run as many trains on the Snow Hill lines as we want to.”

As a result, WMR is temporarily withdrawing some services on the Snow Hill Lines from Monday 14 September. The company said that there has only been a modest increase in passenger numbers in recent weeks with fewer than 30% of pre-Covid passenger numbers travelling on its services. Buses will operate in place of some train services.
