First test train travels between Oxford Parkway and London Marylebone

| September 28, 2015


At 6.58am on Monday 28th September 2015 the first test train travelled on the new stretch of railway line linking Oxford Parkway to London.

The new line is the first new rail link between London and a major British city for over 100 years and it is hoped it will bring significant social, economic and environmental benefits to those living and working in Oxfordshire.

The new link has now been connected to the Chiltern Railways Birmingham to London line with signalling systems updated and tested.

Passenger trains are expected to run on the line in a month’s time.
