Cosford Airshow by Train

Post by Doughnut » Mon May 21, 2018 8:14 am

Any advice on using the train to arrive / depart RAF Cosford station on the Sunday.
Trainline.com seems to say the first train from Wolvehampton is 9.30, arriving 9.49
Anybody have details of extra trains that day.

There will be extra services running on Sunday 10th. I spoke to Cosford last week as their website mentioned it and they are finalising times now. As it stands the first train gets me in at 10:15am from Birmingham Int. But there will be more on the day.

I've done the train from Crewe in the past, with a change at Wolverhampton if I recall. It was VERY busy with quite a bit of queuing on the platform, but nevertheless a reasonable alternative to the inevitable traffic jams. Just as if you were travelling by car, my advice would be to get the earliest train you can get on.

Trains were a nightmare. Unprepared and only 2/3 carriages on each train. A couple cancelled also I believe. b
