West Midlands Trains
We are proud to operate two new railway brands for and to the Midlands, the North West and London.
In the Midlands the West Midlands Railway brand is a local railway placing Birmingham at the centre of its network. We run the majority of the local services, as well as direct trains to many of the surrounding towns and cities, including Redditch, Stratford-upon-Avon, Worcester, Hereford, Shrewsbury, Telford, and Northampton.
Our London Northwestern Railway brand serves the London to Liverpool route on the west coast, stopping at Birmingham, Milton Keynes and Northampton, with the West Midlands at its heart.
Both services are operated by West Midlands Trains Ltd, a joint venture, owned by Abellio, Mitsui and East Japan Railway Company (JR East).
Each business brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the franchise and it's our aim to give you the rail experience you deserve at the price you want to pay.
Over the next nine years, we will deliver a host of key improvements across the network, investing nearly £1bn in service and timetables to make rail travel much easier.
New names, new services, a new promise for you.
