Train updates during the coronavirus outbreak

Last updated: Wednesday 26 April 

Although the “Stay At Home” rule ended on Monday 29 March, the latest Government advice continues to be that people should minimise the number of journeys they make.

With more people returning to rail, social distancing may not be possible on every journey. If you do need to travel, you should make every effort to avoid the busiest times and routes to help maintain social distancing – see below for advice on how to do this. By law you must wear a face covering on a train or at a station – some exemptions apply.

Social Distancing

West Midlands Railway have also introduced Social Distancing – Live Updates to help you decide whether you want to travel, or should make alternative arrangements.  

Simply follow @WestMidRailway or visit their website latest live update.

Check how busy future train journeys may look like by using their website.
