The new Kenilworth Station did, indeed open last Monday 30th April; duly recorded by the Kenilworth local press.
Kenilworth railway station has had a soft launch – on to a veritable two foot thick bed of Andrex. This morning (Wednesday 2nd) Traveline still recommends a taxi when asked for trains from Coventry to Kenilworth.
But, by the time this blog was compose, it had appeared.
On Tuesday it was among the stations listed on the self service ticket machine at Northampton which then tells me no fares are available.
At Coventry there is no sign of Kenilworth on self service machines ...
or departure sheets ...
... but a real booking office person sells a ticket for the 1136 train.
The platform at Kenilworth is on a higher level than the booking office – hence the fence.
The bus stop outside is served only by peak time peak flow station link and rail replacement buses.
The accompanying map is also very helpful but only if you want Stagecoach Buses.
Sir Brian and National Excess run competing Coventry – Kenilworth – Leamington bus services along nearby Warwick Road.
