London Midland’s Leaf Fall Service


I know a lot of local people have experienced problems with London Midland Trains “Leaf Fall” service. I have written to London Midland to raise local people’s concerns about the amended timetable. You can find a copy of their reply to my letter here.

As you will see, London Midland have reinstated stops on the 7.52 Longbridge to Four Oaks Service and the 8.10 Lichfield to Longbridge. I have written back to underline the difficulties which passengers have faced – and to stress the important of passengers being consulted in the future, and for better information to be provided in the event of changes being introduced.
