Get involved with your local railway through the Worcestershire Community Rail Partnership (CRP)

Communities, businesses and tourist attractions are all invited to work with the rail industry and the County Council to promote rail services across Worcestershire.

It’s great for residents too

Community rail is a great way of inspiring residents of all ages and walks of life to get involved in making their local railway station an attractive place to be. Activities can include gardening projects, art displays and using station buildings for a range of events.

Participation promotes social ties and gives local communities a sense of pride and ownership in their local station.

Of the 18 stations in the county, Alvechurch, Barnt Green, Droitwich Spa, Great Malvern, Kidderminster, Malvern Link, Pershore, Evesham, Worcester Foregate Street and Wythall have been formally adopted.

Worcestershire Community Rail Partnership supports local communities to work with the three Train Operating Companies to improve the 18 stations within the County.

Adopting a station provide opportunities to:

  • Engage with communities to improve station facilities and encourage support for rail use.
  • Encourage Station Adoption Groups to enhance station environments and build local pride in the facilities.
  • Improve station accessibility through sustainable travel plans.
  • Support links between the stations and local businesses.

Current partners include the Cotswold Line Promotion Group, Cross Country Trains, Great Western Railway, West Midlands Trains, West Midlands Rail Executive, Worcestershire County Council, the Stourbridge Line User Group, and the Bromsgrove and Redditch Rail User Partnership.
