Christchurch Railway Station - Services

Services

Although passed by the faster trains to Bournemouth it has an hourly semi-fast and stopping services from Waterloo, usually formed by a class 444 Desiro electric multiple unit. This gives a journey time of about two hours from London. As well as Christchurch, the station is useful for reaching eastern parts of Bournemouth. The majority of services were previously operated by class 442 Wessex Electrics which were withdrawn in February 2007.

The station is able to accommodate trains of up to 8 coaches, longer trains only open the doors in the first 5 or 8 coaches depending on the type of unit operating the service.

Road access to the station is from the northern end of Stour Road, near to the junction with Bargates coming from the town centre, at the end of Fairmile coming from the direction of Bournemouth International Airport and the Wessex Way. (A fairly steep bridge over the railway marks the point where Fairmile and Bargates, one straight road, meet.)

Famous quotes containing the word services:

    A good marriage ... is a sweet association in life: full of constancy, trust, and an infinite number of useful and solid services and mutual obligations.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    Civil servants and priests, soldiers and ballet-dancers, schoolmasters and police constables, Greek museums and Gothic steeples, civil list and services list—the common seed within which all these fabulous beings slumber in embryo is taxation.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    Those services which the community will most readily pay for, it is most disagreeable to render.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
