In brief

With the opening of the Jewellery Line between Birmingham Snow Hill and Smethwick Galton Bridge in 1995, Jewellery Quarter was the first stop on the journey towards Stourbridge Junction, Kidderminster and Worcester (either Shrub Hill or Foregate Street). In 1999 Jewellery Quarter Tram Stop opened on Midland Metro line 1.
