    With the FA Cup final on Saturday 30th May 2015, between Aston Villa and Arsenal. Is there any planned extras planned to run? Assuming the likely is London Midland will provide a service with an extra stop at Wembley Central and that's all, plus since Arsenal is already in London no need for any long distance loco-hauled services. Just a query, incase there is! Thanks. :D

    A little early yet to arrange

    Chiltern ran a special timetable last Sunday for the semi. This included four(?) Moor Street/Solihull - non stop Wembley Stadium specials each way.
    I caught one which had started at Warwick Parkway (having run ECS Banbury - Hatton(rev)- Parkway) and ran through to Marylebone. Managed to get a seat at Banbury but full and standing by Bicester. Had to stand as far as Bicester on the return but Chiltern were doing a good job of managing the crowds in the queuing system at Wembley.
    Not sure how many loco hauled were out; one passed us while waiting at Banbury heading for Wembley and one was waiting to come off the depot at Wembley behind our train home.
