22:10. It was a VERY long day! 😂

Ah, got you. I would've stayed longer but I would've had no way of getting home from Brum. How much did it cost you in total to go via Euston? I used Marylebone both ways since you can get the super off peak travelcard, which worked out cheaper iirc.

Well, it was a bit of an impromptu trip, if i'm honest - with my sister and brother. Overall it came to about 36; cheapest for that day would've been 34, but I'd rather spend an extra 2 for the charging outlets. As you can imagine, 15 hours will surely take a toll on my phone's battery; couldn't risk it dying with my train tickets downloaded onto it!

I tend to normally go on Saturdays. Leave around 6-ish, with a return journey about 17:10 - to Snow Hill if possible. For one adult, it usually amounts to 11; if I book in advance. Downside to that fare is that it's two Advance Singles; meaning no flexibility, or day travelcards, though, I do have an Oyster card so that is certainly not an issue for me. Unfortunately, I couldn't do Saturday, as I had Wythall planned. Nevertheless, both were great days. @DJ98

1765-4H
6109-9 stourbridge (beast of a bus did route in 15 minutes)
4582-256- kingswinford
4314-255- Wolverhampton (nice route and the blaze park terminus is quite fun)
4145-69- this makes the modern buses seem powerless- great thrash
4306-77- average trident- average route
4418-110- Birmingham- these are what I regard a high spec service
6712-x10- halesowen- heavy loading resulted in a slow journey
3094*-4H
