This is a video of me taking the Chiltern Railways train from Leamington Spa down to London Marylebone. As you can see, this video was taken during the summer, so there was sunlight all the way. The train has only limited stops and takes just under an hour and a half, stopping at Banbury, Bicester North and Wembley Stadium along the way. And so, this clears my video backlog, all ready for my next holiday!
Chiltern Railways operates quite frequent trains from Birmingham and London. However, their trains go from Birmingham Moor Street to London Marylebone, as opposed to from Birmingham New Street to London Euston. I thing I like about this train is that it is not as crowded as a Virgin Trains or London Northwestern service in the peak hour, but not much slower. If you live in Birmingham and all the cheap tickets on the other routes are sold out, feel free to give Chiltern Railways a try. Of course, this route is also recommended for those people wanting to shop at the Bicester Village and watch football matches at the Wembley Stadium.
