Welcome to Pilning – the station that refuses to die! By 1990 our service had been cut to one train each way daily, during daylight hours only (the lighting had been removed as it had become unsafe). In 2006 it was further slashed to one train each way A WEEK, on Saturdays only. In 2016, a real body blow – our footbridge was demolished and not replaced, leaving us with just two trains a week in one direction and none at all in the other. Was that the final kiss of death? No way – since then, the station’s official usage figures have shot up by a staggering 900%-plus, and our campaign for a better service and a reinstated footbridge has been steadily gathering support, momentum and media coverage. Read all about it on this website – and contact us to share your thoughts and suggestions!
