    Thumbs up Kenilworth to Get Railway Station

    Kenilworth will only get a very local service to start with, but it's a start!

    ALSO THE RICHO ARENA DESPERATELY NEEDS A STATION. The roads are chokka and miserable on match days. On and off plans have been mooted since it was built. Last time I heard- some bright spark had come up with a new idea. 'How about a station for the Arena'.What planet are they on? The railway is just over the road too.Unless - since I last went by a few weeks ago, a new housing estate has sprung up on the spare land.
    It was more interesting when the gypsies were there.(I shall always regret not taking a photo of that stretch of sofas along the A444 when they were evicted.)

    The Ricoh station is under-way: and certainly not before time!

    Now, the mention of gypsies... There were two traveller vans there last week at the back of the complex. I noticed they'd gone this week though, but there was no noticeable debris left behind.

    Given the other choice, I'd have gone for the more traditional design too: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-30150778

    The station's the latest place to hear the footsteps following the election trail: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...ion-on-8702232

    Jumping on a bandwagon built by the efforts of others.

    That was an interesting read Lex, thanks.

    Talking stations, it would appear that the Ricoh station is almost ready to open.

    Looks like we'll have to wait a few weeks longer: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...tation-9384611

    We've waited this long, a few more weeks won't matter much.

    Looks like Kenilworth may not be getting its station at all, at least in the near future: http://www.warwickcourier.co.uk/news...ions-1-6819823
