Discover where London Northwestern and West Midlands Railways can take you

Previously known as London Midland, the franchise is now split into two separate train services, both with a different purpose for its passengers. With Birmingham New Street serving as a hub and interchange for the passengers, the  2 routes provide both long-distance and short-distance routes, enabling commuters to travel across the Midlands at relative ease. 

London Northwestern is a faster, long-distance provider. With a terminal in London Euston and Liverpool Lime Street, trains also call at Coventry, Northampton, and Stoke among others, meaning passengers can also change here for other services with different train companies. West Midlands train services provide a convenient train travel option for those looking to travel into and around Birmingham, with Litchfield Trent Valley, Nuneaton, and Tile Hill acting as interchanges between the 2 lines.
