West Midlands ADEX's 1984 - part 2

"Timewarp : now under heavy general overhaul - expect a new livery and shiny new nameplates soon!"

Awaydays, Merrymakers or plain old Advertised Excursions, whatever they were marketed as in your area, the once commonplace ADEX is just another aspect of the railway scene that is long gone... to read more (see part 1).

This page was previously part of our old site 1980's Timewarp, with many thanks to Gary Stratford.

Can you add to the listing below? Do you know what worked any of these trains or can you confirm if they even ran? Did you travel on any of the services listed and do you have any railway related memories of the trip? Please post in the box below.

Info in the table below in BOLD was added or amended at the last page update.
