A local train stopping at the sites of the proposed railway stations on the Camp Hill line has demonstrated the progress being made on the restoration of three railway stations on this line.
Kings Heath and Hazelwell stations have already been granted planning permission, with the application for Moseley due to be submitted imminently.
The West Midlands Railway (WMR) train, carrying the Mayor, WMR’s customer experience director Jonny Wiseman and other representatives from across the rail industry, travelled along the line.
The train followed the route of what would be the re-opened line, pausing at the Moseley, Kings Heath, and Hazelwell sites before arriving into Kings Norton – and later returning to Birmingham New Street. The purpose of this inspection train was to explore how new passenger services on the Camp Hill line would work.
