Birmingham Air-Rail Link

Birmingham Airport, United Kingdom, is an enjoyable airport to travel through. One fun, if initially confusing, aspect of getting to the airport is the Air-Rail Link.

Arriving by train to Birmingham International railway station does not mean you have arrived at the airport. The airport is another short journey away by the Air-Rail Link.

As many others have done before me, I filmed the Air-Rail Link journey as we headed back. The system is fully automated, departs almost every two minutes, and feels swift enough not to add additional stress.

Not sure why the hello world is on the side of the building. Seems like a ploy to raise a smile from programmers.
