The Snow Hill line between Birmingham Snow Hill and Kidderminster suffered delays on Friday after a fault in the signaling system was discovered at Langley Green, near Oldbury.

This meant that services passing through the station to stations such as Stourbridge Junction and Cradley Heath faced delays of up to five minutes due to reduced speed through Langley Green.

The issue continued down the line throughout the day as engineers worked to resolve the issue.

A West Midlands Railway spokesperson said: “Due to a fault in the signaling system at Langley Green, trains are having to run at reduced speed on some lines.

“Train services passing through this station can be delayed up to 5 minutes. Disruptions are expected through the end of today.

“We expect some of our trains to be affected by this incident. To see how this might affect you, please use Live Departures and Arrivals or plan your journey using National Rail Inquiries’ real-time journey planner.
