I need to get the train from Birmingham to Shrewsbury on Sunday 27th. I know the line is closed between Birmingham and Wolverhampton but seem to be getting confusing information. The Network Rail site says that there is a replacement bus service but then goes on to say that the trains are taking a diverted route and so will be taking longer. Does any one know which it is please. Thanks in advance.

Very likely it's both? Here are all the through trains from Birmingham New Street to Shrewsbury on Easter Sunday:

If you click through to any of the schedules and click on "show all timing points", you can see that they are diverted via Bescot. But there are also replacement buses that will call at the intermediate stations between Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
