About Cross Country Trains

Cross Country is a Train Operating Company of the UK owned by the Arriva Group.

Cross Country Trains have the most extensive rail network franchise in the UK, stretching from Aberdeen to Penzance, and from Stansted to Cardiff and provide express and long distance rail services between many major towns and cities outside London.

Many journeys with CrossCountry Trains include a change at Birmingham New Street station which can, at busy times, be tricky, especially if you're traveling with children, cycles or heavy luggage.

While for some journeys changing trains at Birmingham New Street is unavoidable, for others there are easier, more convenient station options. These are Wolverhampton, Cheltenham Spa, Derby and Leamington Spa.

In some cases you will be able to change trains without having to switch platforms, making your journey even smoother. For example, if you're traveling from Newcastle to Cardiff Central, and don't want to change at Birmingham New Street, you can change at Derby instead.

These stations all offer the facilities you say are important - waiting rooms, toilets and refreshments and staff ready to help you with connections and other journey information.

Cross Country Trains Airport Train Connections
