  1. On election day, a worker on the railways told me that if there was no operative at a station, such as someone in the ticket office, any lifts at that station must be locked and cannot be used.
    That is because if someone gets stuck in a lift there would then be noone to rescue them.
    CENTRO is investing huge sums in lifts at Northfield and Selly Oak stations. There is already a lift at Longbridge station.
    Yet Midlands Trains is consulting on removing the ticket office staff from Northfield and Longbridge stations.
    What is the point of investing in these lifts if they can never be used?
