The train passed Lichfield City station at 20:51 running 60mins late, held up at a signal at Barnt Green just before Longbridge.

This was due to engineering works on the Birmingham to Burton Line, that saw Cross Country trains stopping at Lichfield City, with a rail replacement bus service to Tamworth.
