2 London Midland Created to deliver the benefits of WCRM; franchise runs from November 2007 to September ,200 services a day serving 149 LM stations 50m passenger journeys a year West Coast – busiest mixed traffic railway in Europe £300m investment during the franchise including £243m in new and refurbished trains £11.5m in stations, (£5.2m of which is for car parking)

3 The % of trains arriving within 5 minutes of their booked time; Public Performance Measure (PPM) March; 92.5% April; 92.7% PPM this period so far; 94.8% The April PPM was the best punctuality achieved since the start of the LM Franchise Punctuality

5 Timetable & Capacity Improvements introduced in December 2008 New direct services between: Euston, Watford and Crewe via the Trent Valley Euston, Watford, Northampton and Birmingham 10 x 4 car new 350/2 ‘Desiro’ trains introduced LM retained 7 x 321 sets (until Jun 2012), enabling: all Euston peak arrivals (07.40 to 08.45) to be 12 car sets more 12 car sets in the pm peak more 8 car sets for evening & Saturday services

6 Timetable & Capacity Improvements introduced in December 2009 New services; 3 extra Watford/Euston AM peak services 2 extra Euston/Watford PM peak services more capacity created on surrounding services Other improvements; improved frequency and reduced gaps at Hemel Hempstead, Apsley, Berkhamsted & Kings Langley LM made late changes to the Abbey Line timetable because of concerns about connections at Watford

7 High Level Output Statement; (HLOS) Feb 2010: Business case submitted to the DfT Jun 2012: If successful we will have 9 new Desiros 5 Desiros would replace our remaining five 321s net gain of 4 additional trains the HLOS decision is deferred until after the election! However; this solution has a ‘shelf life’

8 Capacity in future Once all peak services are 12 car sets they can’t be lengthened. More train paths are required: Intercity Express Project Optional for West Coast (now under review) Possible shorter term solution when the West Coast moderation of competition ends in 2012
