One franchise era ends, another begins…

This week marks the end of London Midlands tenure at Nuneaton and the start of a new franchise – West Midlands Trains, starting next week. As usual there is the promise of ‘jam tomorrow’ including new trains although there is unlikely to be much of a change for Nuneaton passengers with the exception of the Coventry service going to 3 trains an hour (3 at the weekend) at some point. We hope that the new franchise has a better start than London Midland who, after a poor start, became victims of their own success with passenger usage increasingly hugely.
