History[edit] In April 2016, the Department for Transport
Department for Transport
(DfT) announced the shortlist of bidders for the West Midlands franchise, comprising the incumbent operator Govia, MTR Corporation, and West Midlands Trains; a consortium of Abellio (70%), JR East (15%) and Mitsui
Mitsui
(15%).[3][4][5] In July 2016, MTR Corporation
MTR Corporation
withdrew from the bidding process.[6][7] The invitation to tender was issued in August 2016.[8] In August 2017, the West Midlands Trains
West Midlands Trains
consortium was awarded the franchise. It took over from London Midland
London Midland
on 10 December 2017.[9][10] The franchise is scheduled to run until March 2026.[11][12] Management[edit] Unlike the previous London Midland
London Midland
franchise, which was solely accountable to the DfT, WMT will also be accountable for services that operate wholly within the West Midlands region to West Midlands Rail, a group of 16 local authorities.[13][14] However the DfT will still need to approve any changes West Midlands Rail
West Midlands Rail
wish to make until the franchise is relet, by which time West Midlands Rail
West Midlands Rail
will award the future franchise for services wholly with the West Midlands region. Branding[edit] WMT services are split into two businesses which operate under two distinct sub-brands. Longer-distance train services running on the West Coast Main Line, including those running to/from London Euston, Liverpool Lime Street and Crewe operate under the London Northwestern brand. This name was chosen in tribute to the former London & North Western Railway (LNWR), the company that operated services on the route until 1923. Branding of trains and associated publicity use a green colour scheme with a logo composed of the letters N and W.[15][16] Services running in Birmingham and the West Midlands region — previously operated by under the London Midland
London Midland
City brand — are operated by WMT under the West Midlands Railway brand. These services bear an orange and grey colour scheme and are branded with a hexagonal "WM" monogram. WMT have chosen to operate these services as a distinct business unit in order to facilitate a possible future devolution of these services from the national DfT to the West Midlands Combined Authority.[15] Services[edit] West Midlands Trains
West Midlands Trains
operate all train services previously run by London Midland. Trains operate under one of the company's two brand names depending on route.[17] London Northwestern Railway[edit]

Future[edit]

Map of the Birmingham & the West Midlands rail network (2017)

Future changes include:[11]

new shuttle service between Coventry and Leamington Spa calling at the new Kenilworth station extension of the Cross-City Line services to Bromsgrove once the Lickey Incline
Lickey Incline
is electrified from Barnt Green introduction of peak hour London Euston to Walsall services extension of London Euston to Crewe services to Liverpool Lime Street and Preston introduction of a half hourly service between Northampton and Crewe via Tamworth and Stafford introduction of a half hourly service between Birmingham New Street and Shrewsbury[19] extension of the Birmingham to Wolverhampton service to Crewe via Stoke-on-Trent. This will replace the London Euston to Crewe service via Stoke-on-Trent that will operate directly from Stafford to Crewe via the West Coast Main Line.[20] The change of this service has angered councillors in Staffordshire as to the loss of the direct service (although Virgin Trains West Coast
Virgin Trains West Coast
will continue to operate a London-bound service through Stoke-on-Trent). The change of service is necessitated by West Midlands Trains
West Midlands Trains
increasing the number of carriages up to twelve in peak hours, which makes stopping at Alsager, Stone and Kidsgrove impossible due to their platform lengths being unable to take 12-car trains.[21] West Midlands Rail
West Midlands Rail
have since stated these stations will retain a direct service to London taking a slower route via Birmingham and Northampton.[22]

From 10 December 2017, the Stafford – Stoke-on-Trent Rail Replacement Bus was cut back to run only between Stoke-on-Trent & Norton Bridge, via Wedgwood, Barlaston and Stone. Rolling stock[edit] WMT inherited a fleet of Class 139, 150, 153, 170, 172, 319, 323 and 350 units from London Midland, but as the newer units come on stream, some will be returned to the leasing companies that own them.[23][24] Current fleet[edit]
