    Getting around/to/from the city/airport by train was easy. Trains to/from the airport take between 9 minutes and 15. Even on a Sunday they are frequent - maybe 10-15 minutes apart.

Most of the time it will not be worth it, especially...

The only section that has ever been build is the 12 and a half mile route from Birmingham to Wolverhampton - if you ever have a burning desire to travel between the two. You can in fact travel the journey by 'heavy rail' in a much shorter time, so it is really only useful if you are...
