Organisation: Friends of Tyseley Station
Station: Tyseley

The Vision: To help upgrade the environs of the station, provide local pride in recounting local history, and provide community support to efforts to increase rail passenger numbers and reduce the levels of anti-social behaviour

The Vision: 


The installation of twenty window art boards for the disused station buildings at Tyseley station is transformational for the community and customer experience.

The station volunteers have long toiled at this station to bring floral colour to the long, grey platforms and in seeking to further upgrade the platform environs and help to tackle levels of anti-social behaviour, these beautiful window boards were designed.

The images combine local landmarks and symbols of the area's rich industrial heritage and social history, other boards outline destinations down the line for rail passengers and highlight interesting locations accessible by a direct train journey from this station.

The Shakespeare Line itself commences at Tyseley Junction and the stye of artwork, presentation and content used for the community art boards has been successfully deployed along the Line at other stations along the line. The art style reflective of the art nouveau period which was the heyday of the railway revolution in the Midlands.

The boards feature on all four platforms promoting the significant social history of the area and an array of 'daycation' destinations, accessible by direct train services from Tyseley.

The customer experience and station volunteer pride will be significantly enhanced by this project and the community aims to create a richer and safer environment for the volunteers, uplift the station platforms, reduce the incidences of Anti-Social Behaviour, and encourage more rail journeys and increased footfall and local pride in the station.
