Coventry-Leamington  starts on 19th Feb - cl.153 and no Sunday service. The ECS comes from New St rather than Tyseley, so are New St working the trains rather than Leamington?

Might do!
Apparently there is still a question mark over whether Kenilworth Station will be ready.

It is being worked by Coventry crew, so the empty stock has to go via Birmingham & Coventry to start.

Yes - I'd just come back to edit my posting to say 19th was an assumption, based on the altered ECS working.

Surely the station must be finished now - interesting that the letter implies that Warwickshire told the ORR the station wouldn't be ready in December.

The empty stock moves to/from New St have disappeared since this afternoon, so looks like I was premature. Still showing for the following week.

I have been told that Warwickshire County Council will shortly announce that services will start a week late on 26 February.

I have been given a confirmed opening date by WMR, but am not allowed to post it, but not the 26th

Is that because somebody wants to be on the first trains from the Great Northern to Thameslink the same day ;D
