West Midlands Trains Ltd will take over routes currently operated by London Midland from December. The franchise covers routes in the West Midlands, as well as from London Euston to Crewe, and Liverpool to Birmingham.

London Midland said the new franchise would bring "Much welcomed investment in new services and extra capacity across the network".
