The latest in from London Midland: our little line has had its best year under their franchise. The total number of journeys on the line during 2014/15 was 293,196. To put that in perspective, we have added 34.5k journeys a year over the last 2 years.
There is good news at Ridgmont especially. Passenger numbers travelling to the station has risen 17,387 to 27,598 in the same period. Nothing to do with our lovely tea rooms and heritage centre, of course.
Here’s to another good year!
