The service was created as it was today when the Department for Transport stated their wish to re-structure many franchises, including the one in question. The new service would consist of the then current InterCity Cross Country franchise run by Virgin Cross Country, less the Birmingham to Scotland and Manchester to Scotland services, the former going to Virgin West Coast, and the latter to First TransPennine Express. The services from Cardiff to Nottingham and Birmingham to Stansted Airport services from Central Trains where also incorporated.


The company run several routes to most main regions of Great Britain (Not London), using a hub model of Birmingham New Street. They are known for not operating any stations and having the longest direct passenger route.
