West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway logos

Since Abellio was awarded the West Midlands Trains (WMT) franchise in 2017 we have set about investing £1billion in the region’s rail network, including £700m on new and refurbished trains.

Two fleets are currently in production, meaning 400 extra carriages for passengers travelling on the West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway services operated by WMT. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, WMT has maintained a reliable, crucial service to the region, working closely with industry partners.

The WMT franchise is run as a joint venture with East Japan Railway Company and Mitsui & Co.
