Commuters in Warwickshire are facing more delays to rail services following an arson attack on signalling equipment at the weekend.
Passengers travelling to Birmingham on the Dorridge and Stratford lines are being warned the service will not return to normal until next week.


Central Trains said it has been forced to operate an emergency timetable until signalling repairs are completed.

One train an hour will operate from Dorridge and Stratford to the city.

Trains leaving Birmingham's Snow Hill for Dorridge and Stratford will also operate only once an hour.

Bus service

Meanwhile trains between Snow Hill and Stourbridge Junction will operate half hourly. Travel West Midlands is continuing to accept train tickets on relevant bus services.

Earlier this week, Railtrack offered a £50,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the arson attack.

It is thought that equipment cabinets between Small Heath and Tyseley stations in Birmingham were set on fire at about 2100 BST on Sunday.

It is being linked to a series of similar incidents in the West Midlands and Warwickshire area and British Transport Police are investigating.

This is the latest in a series of attacks. Will they ever catch this person? I certainly hope so. Will he be punished accordingly? Again, I hope so but sadly I doubt it.
