London Midland has lifted ticket restrictions so that passengers can delay their journeys and travel tomorrow (Friday 24 February).

While high winds are affecting rail services across the region London Midland train tickets can be used on any of the following services:

Virgin Trains between London - Birmingham - Chester - Liverpool

Chiltern Trains between Stourbridge - Kidderminster - Leamington - London Marylebone

Cross Country between Reading - Birmingham - Manchester - Nottingham

Arriva Trains Wales between Birmingham - Chester - Shrewsbury

Merseyrail between Liverpool South Parkway - Liverpool - Chester

East Midlands Train between Stoke-on-Trent and Crewe

Southern between Milton Keynes - Watford - Shepherds Bush

NXWM [ National Express West Midlands] on all routes.

London Buses between Watford - London Euston

London Overground between Watford - London Euston - Shepherds Bush

A 50 mile per hour speed restriction is now in place across the network until at least 1600 hours.

This means fewer trains can run and some journeys will take longer to complete. Individual lines are being blocked by falling trees and debris. The Cross City Line between Birmingham and Lichfield is unlikely to re-open today.
