Have they started to run trains back from Coventry Arena straight after the game yet? last time I got the train up there were no return trains for well over an hour after the match.

Seems to be one at 1721, and one at 1749 to Nuneaton to pick up a WM Trains service back to Euston too.

Thats better than it used to be, defeats the point of a station there if you can't get trains back after a match as they lay them on after the egg chasing matches there.

 Ooh this could be exciting, game's not for another 2.5 weeks and we could get all sorts of talk about train timetables  Smiley

 I seem to remember a railway line, right near the Ricoh when I went season before last.

If I remember correctly from when we were there a few seasons ago, they cited potential overcrowding as the reason for not running trains between Coventry Arena & Coventry - until after the crowds had dispersed.  So they could run trains for events (such as the rugby) where the crowds were not as large - but not for CCFC games.

Quite ironic really as Wasps average 18k and have had a few 30k+ crowds recently.

Cheers JJ. We got a bus last season and it took forever (think we got the wrong one to boot!)

I normally park at a hotel about a 10 mins walk from the stadium when I go to Cov. Last time I went the whole squad was in there so looked a bit stalkerish. Ross Embleton came and had a chat with us and seemed like a genuinely nice bloke.... If only I'd known....
