Remarks & Notes 
A short half mile branch line links the stations at Stourbridge Junction and Stourbridge Town,and the regular shuttle service is provided by a Class 139 "People Mover".Introduced in 2009,the vehicles utilise flywheel energy storage as the main source of energy to propel the vehicle. The flywheel captures braking energy when the brakes are used, and re-uses the energy for acceleration. As the unit's primary motive power comes from the flywheel, this eliminates the need for a large diesel engine. The small onboard engine is used to power up the vehicle initially, and to provide power for the onboard systems.There are two vehicles available,each carrying up to 35 people.139001 is seen here approaching Stourbridge Town station on a typical November day.
