Has anyone taken this trip, changing trains in Birmingham?
Thousands of people probably. What do you want to know?
Up until a few months ago you could get a direct train, now under the new franchise you HAVE to change at Brum
So not as many people have done it - still a LONG trip though
Eh? Whats Plymouth go to do with that?
I was thinking of taking Brittany Ferries from Plymouth to Roscoff. Thought it would be a good opportunity for me to see Plymouth and Devon, if I took the train from Oxenholme or Penrith, to Plymouth via Birmingham.
Changing in Birmingham can be a bind - they try to (or used to) put connecting cross country trains on opposite sides of the same platform, but it doesn't always work. If the times (and tickets) work out it's a much easier change at Wolverhampton.
Thank you for your help, Dzug.
You can check out the train connections on www.seat61.com a site independant of the rail companies about travel in the UK and europe by train.
