Birmingham New Street Station
 
There was just a little open day light at each end of Birmingham New Street Station be for the latest remodelling, all the rest of the station was under offices and shops
 
Birmingham New street Station is one of the Uk's largest stations and it is under other buildings and rather dark. All the ticket offices and coffee shops are above the platforms and you often have to use the escalators steps or lifts to get to the platforms. The amount of trains using the station means that the TV screens show lots of pages but only about 30mins 60mins ahead at peak times.
 
New Street station is on the West Coast Main Line with trains to London and Liverpool, Manchester and Scotland.
 
There are also trains to north and south Wales plus the south west and  the south of England.Trains also go to the the north east of England Leeds and York and Newcastle. Trains go to the east to Leicester and Peterborough and then on to Cambridge and Stansted Airport.
 
Trains also go to Shrewsbury Newcastle and Bournemouth and Bristol as well as Plymouth. These are just some of the towns served from this station. Along side all these trains lots of local Birmingham trains also use the station. In fact you can go to amost any were in the Uk from this hub
 
New Street is not Birmingham's only main line station with trains to London. Birmingham Moor Street station is a short  (for the fit ) walk away and Snow Hill Station is also not to far away.
 
Work was well in hand in 2017 on the "Birmingham Gateway" to redevelopment and make New Street a far better station. This will hopefully make it lighter and more passenger friendly. This is costing £6,000000 pounds and will hopefully be done by 2015. Any one who has used this station will say, "it's not be for time!"
