WHERE CAN I RIDE ON A PPM RAILCAR?

A Parry People Movers railcar is in daily service on the Stourbridge Town branch in the West Midlands. The fleet of two PPM 60s, or Class 139s as they have been designated, run as part of the London Midland franchise. Timetable and ticketing information can be found at www.londonmidland.com, simply type in ‘Stourbridge Junction’ and ‘Stourbridge Town’ as start point and destination. Stourbridge Junction station is served by frequent local trains operated by London Midland, and trains from London Marylebone operated by Chiltern Railways.

Return tickets, for a modest fare, can be purchased at either station for a return trip on the line. If you intend to travel to Stourbridge Junction by rail, make sure that your ticket has ‘Stourbridge Town’ as its destination rather than ‘Stourbridge Junction’. This will allow you to travel on the shuttle service when you arrive.

For visitors locating Stourbridge by road, we have prepared the following maps showing the station and its local road network, and Stourbridge on the wider motorway network. Visitors by car should head straight for Stourbridge Junction, using one of the three free station car parks. Parking around Stourbridge Town station is limited.

Services are frequent – running every ten minutes in each direction from early morning until late at night Monday to Saturday (and slightly less frequently between 10am and 8pm on Sundays) – so you will not have to wait long for the next Class 139 departure.
