Brentford fans are being advised of industrial action that will affect rail travel for the away game against West Bromwich Albion. The Bees head to the West Midlands for their last game before Christmas. The fixture is set for Saturday 21 December and will kick-off at 3pm but travel difficulties are expected.
Industrial action is set to reduce rail services throughout the West Midlands in November and December and our game at West Brom is set to be affected. West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway will run a reduced service on 21 December – and other Saturdays – which will mean fewer trains, some stations will not be served, and some West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway services will finish earlier than normal. Full details on the action can be seen here.
Brentford fans have been advised they can still get to The Hawthorns for the fixture by rail, but will you need to check before you travel and leave more time. West Brom have been told there will be a reduced rail service at The Hawthorns station on West Midlands Railway but an additional two trams throughout the day. Rail tickets will be accepted on the tram. In addition, staff will be available to direct people on the platforms.
Coach travel will be available for the game and other rail operators will run as normal. The Hawthorns is served by the West Midlands Metro tram service and Chiltern Railways. Other train operators will run services between London and the West Midlands as normal. Ticket information for this game will follow soon.
