A DAILY train to Glasgow and a faster London Midland train to London are two new services that will be available from Rugby next month.

Rugby Rail Users’ Group (RRUG) welcomed the news at its meeting on November 15. The London Midland Project 110 timetable will run from Rugby to London in 55 minutes for the fastest trains and is in addition to the fast Virgin trains. The new service starts on December 10 and will initially be off-peak only but will later be extended to include peak-time trains.

Stephanie Clifford, RRUG chair, said: “After the disastrous handling of the West Coast franchise, this is good news for Rugby passengers. We hope that London Midland will deliver a service to be proud of.”
