Ooh, new train services from Stoke to Birmingham. Dull, I know, but here we go….

The basic good news for Stoke-on-Trent is this…

  • An exactly 90 minute morning service (9.12am) from Stoke-on-Trent into London Euston. Which is the quickest morning service yet.
  • Many inter-city services now offer a 47 minute service to Birmingham New St.
  • Longer trains (more carriages) on many inter-city services.
  • And a new direct service from Stoke to Lichfield Trent Valley (although it takes a sluggish 45 minutes, and the station is more than a mile outside Lichfield city centre).
  • Trains from London Euston to Stoke-on-Trent take a mere 83 minutes after 8pm at night.
