The Western Region in 1965 has lost one of its premier routes, transferred to the London Midland region - Paddington to Birmingham Snow Hill and onwards to Shrewsbury and Birkenhead. The Birmingham route hangs on for another year or so until electrification from Euston is completed, and several rural routes in the South West are also on borrowed time. The Severn Tunnel carries car-trains for another year also, awaiting completion of the first road bridge.
