Annoyingly there''s a 22:17 from Walsall, but it doesn''t stop at the Bescot Stadium.  You''d think that they''d make an extra stop on match nights.

There is the 22:17 from Walsall, but that''s the train mentioned above that goes to New Street but doesn''t stop at the Bescot with a connection to Nottingham.  There is a train that gets you to Walsall just in time to catch this from the Bescot, but it would be a risk just in case it''s running a few minutes late.

Bescot Stadium - 22:10
Walsall - 22:14

Walsall - 22:17
Birmingham New Street - 22:40

Birmingham New Street - 23:09
Nottingham - 00:18

It shouldn''t really be a problem due to the Bescot station being right next door to the ground, so we should have a comfortable 10mins from full time to get out of te ground and to the station, no sweat!

I''m not taking the risk Matt, dont fancy being stranded in Birmingham for the night.

I can catch the 21:44 from the Bescot and won''t miss much if any of the match.

 

21:44 - bescot stadium22:09 - birmingham new street.
23:09 - birmingham new street 00:18 - nottingham

 

the 22:44 from the bescot gets me into New St at 23:09, no chance getting the last train back to Notts at 23:09.

The game will finish after 9:35, more like 9:40. So I''d leave a couple of mins early just to beat the rush (or just wait by the exit to watch the last min or two). Should make it fine though. Enjoy the game!

[quote user="Matt Juler"]There are three trains from Bescot Stadium to Birmingham New Street after the match... 21:44, 22:44 and 23:44.  All take 9 minutes.[/quote]

9 minutes? Where do you get that from? Trainline tell me 25 minutes.

If it was 9 minutes I oculd get the train back to Gloucester, but at 25 minutes it would only allow me 3 minutes to change at New Street. WIth the next train not leaving until 5.30am the next morning, I aint risking it!

Thanks for the offer mate, but I think I''ll drive up there - not too far from here, just literllay up the aforementioned M5 and not being able to drink on a ''school night'' is probably a blessing in disguise.

Shall look out for your scarves on the way up there!
