Miscellaneous updates: Chiltern Railways / LondonMidland / Virgin Trains

Chiltern Railways

Chiltern continue to promote the Mainline service in Birmingham. Last Thursday's Birmingham Post carried a full page advert offering a MacBook Air in a competition... see


LondonMidland's Great Escape starts today and runs until Sunday 19th February. Off-peak day tickets for £15 (£25 First Class) - first train to London is the 0913 from New Street - with NO restrictions for Birmingham passengers returning from London Euston. Will be monitoring the Twittersphere to see what the commuters make of this generosity during half-term!

Virgin Trains

Virgin are upgrading the food and drink offering in their First Class Lounges and are seeking feedback. Alas, the upgrade hadn't reached New Street on Friday so I can not yet give an opinion...

onboard for Winter / Spring '12 has been published and features a range of festivals in Birmingham.

Congratulations to Virgin Trains on two recent awards: Favourite Rail Operator award at the prestigious Globe Travel awards and for topping the performance league among companies operating long-distance rail franchises
