    The Cross City Line is a 32 mile suburban railway in the West Midlands. Operated by West Midlands Trains, it runs from Redditch to Lichfield, passing through the newly redeveloped Birmingham New Street. It passes through countryside, suburbs and the city center, and includes a steep incline, some single track, and a variety of modern and traditional stations.

    The southern half of the line also forms part of the Cross Country Route, with some long distance trains stopping at University (Cross Country to Cardiff and WMR to Hereford).

    The service on the core section of the line between Four Oaks and Longbridge, six trains per-hour operate each way, giving a ten-minute frequency of service. Of these, four northbound trains per hour continue from Four Oaks to Lichfield City, and two of these continue to Lichfield Trent Valley. Southbound three trains per hour continue from Longbridge to Redditch. There are additional services on match days from Aston station

    The rolling stock is Class 323. The 24 stations (excluding New Street) have a combined passenger number of about 23 million per year).

    Main problem here is licensing, I think
