				   From 1st March 1997 local services in Worcestershire that originated 
				   from Birmingham were privatised and trains were operated by Central 
				   Trains, a subsidiary of National Express plc. This decision came as a 
				   shock to many in Birmingham as the operator already possessed a near 
				   monopoly of bus services in the West Midlands.</P>
