Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cross-City Line is a suburban railway line in the West Midlands region of England. It runs from Redditch, Worcestershire, its southern terminus, to Lichfield, Staffordshire, its northern terminus, via Birmingham New Street, and services on the line are currently operated by London Midland. The 7.4 million Cross City line was sanctioned in May 1975 and launched on 8 May 1978. Services initially ran between Longbridge and Four Oaks via Birmingham New Street and the project was a creation of the West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive. It is formed out of the former Midland Railway's Birmingham West Suburban Railway between Redditch and Birmingham via Selly Oak, and the London and North Western Railway Line between Birmingham and Lichfield. On opening in 1978 it included the re-opening of Five Ways station and a new station to serve the University of Birmingham; and one at Longbridge many of the other stations were rebuilt at the same time.show more
