    According to Wikipedia, as well as the Walsall direct parly, there is a Wolverhampton - Bescot Stadium direct service on a Saturday. I can't find it on the London Midland site nor the PSUL website. Is this just an error?

    Ending at Bescot? sounds dodgy to me.

    It may continue on to Birmingham NS or it may be in the opposite direction but I haven't heard of this parly before so I'm sceptical too.

    Nothing else shown as passenger at Darlaston Jn apart from the Wolves Walsall and diverted Virgins, Wikinonsense again.

    It may be a rounder from Birmingham NS to Birmingham NS or something.

    There is a direct Wolverhamton-Bescot Stadium (continuing to Walsall) train every 30 minutes all day but goes via Birmingham.
    Nothing bar the Saturday am train goes down the branch from Wolves though and nothing is booked to terminate at Bescot so its definitely not right.

    Must be a fault somewhere because as mentioned there is no service terminating at Bescott

    Closest you will get is an ATW/VT going BHM - WVH via Bescot Stadium but not stopping, hoping to do the line going on a VT on a Friday night before taking the parly the next morning if my plans go well in the future!

    Recent History

    Paragraph 3

    'There is also a service between Besot Stadium and Wolverhampton on Saturdays as well not via Walsall, using the other track direct to Bescot Stadium.'

    Looks like someone has changed it to be correct.

    Engineering work this weekend means lots of opportunities to go via Bescot at civilised hours. Virgin and ATW are both running hourly nonstop Wolverhampton-Birmingham and return via Bescot on Saturday and Sunday.
