Most routes start from Birmingham. However, as the directory has expanded from a local guide to a widening regional one, the logic of
this is breaking down, and routes are likely to be reorganised in a north-south presentation. Every sketch shows the direction
between the end-most stations on the particular line and describes parking and easy access provision. Note that the platform that
handles the most waiting passengers (especially morning commuters) usually has a larger share of resources such as seating, shelter and bicycle storage,
and is commonly where the ticket office is sited. So except where the site didn't suit this, the Birmingham platform on most West
Midlands stations is the one that is better catered for.
